Week: 09/24/2012 Instructor: Constance Knott Academics
Announcements and Assessments: We will take a second quiz on Thursday; voice skills concepts, terminology, music writing, sight singing, music analysis.
Students continue to write in journals, track their learning on a grid. This week we will include goal setting in the journals. Students will be receiving a 'rubric' which defines daily grading
Voice Skills: We are now practicing all 7 Fundamentals of SInging. Emphasis this week will be on energized breath/sending the sound up and over the head = using the entire body to sing; imagining the sound traveling on air.
We are working to match sound with each other, and create healthy full tone
Music Reading and Writing Skills:
Continuing emphasis on reading notes. We have worked intervals, hearing, singing, using hand signs. This week we will move towards dictations (students hear, then write)
Music Analysis and Music Listening:
Analysis on power point of Gloria; introduce vocabulary and form
Listening to choirs singing Gloria; introduce vocabulary and form
Girls' piece still needs some learning, and Boston is not quite finished.
Time to fine tune the pieces.
