Voice Skills: We continue to work on sustaining sound with breath energy, creating clean well shaped vowels for uniform sound, singing in three part chords,and listening.
Music Analysis: This week our song to analyze is an arrangement of "America, the Beautiful". We use a chart to study how the elements are played out in a given song and fill in each section of the chart accordingly.
The students need to be choosing their topic for the poster/paragraph project this week.
Reading and Rhythm skills: Every session we do some rhythm and melodic sightreading of patterns and intervals.
