7-8 Charger Chorus 4th Q 11.12 Lesson Plans
Week: 04/09/2012 Instructor: Constance Knott Academics
Concert is coming up soon, on April 24th! Students will need black pants and shoes, but they can wear a shirt or top of their choice (no T-Shirts)! So if you are going shopping think colorful! Boys can wear a tie if they wish
Voice Skills:
Brilliance in the tone, maintain decent alignment, low breaths and using body to sing. Get the mouthes open to let the sound out.
Reading Skills:
Some exercises to use as warmups, key of C with rhythms, and some exercises we can sing in rounds
This Train: Boys' piece needs some serious work this week; holding parts, rhythms and dynamics. Pretty much everything needs a good 'going over'
Rainbow's End: Girls' piece is in better shape, but it is easier. They need to get it memorized and have good phrasing.
Hymn to Joy: Needs old fashioned drill and memory work. Parts are learned, words need some time yet, practice dynamics
Courage: drill pages 10-12 again, then work from top to bottom
Rhythm of Life needs review and memory
Dynamite: Sing for fun
Paperwork: students need to hand in the Hymn to Joy that they wrote in the do-re-mi's on.
