Lesson Plans
Choir 1st Q 06.07 Lesson Plans
Week: 10/02/2006 Instructor: Constance Knott Academics
Powder Puff football today, no choir.
Announcements:What a busy week this will be!! As a choir we will concentrate on sightreading and getting our portfolios started. Students who need to get some makeup work will be encouraged to either come in for a mini voice lesson or do a worksheet or two. It's midterm already! All this week students interested in special groups are to stop by any day at 8:00. We're looking for those interested in Boys 50's, Choralaires, and Vocal Jazz. The Vocal Jazz group is more select, but all are for students seeking more opportunities to sing!

News: We rehearsed the boys and girls separately last week to prepare for their individual pieces for the festival.A lot of the choir members really are singing out and feeling more comfortable in their respective parts. Everything has been going very smoothly.
Music: We've got some wrinkles to iron out in "When the Saints" and "Sally Gardens", we'll do sectionals for the girls' and boys'pieces. We'll be adding full accompaniment to the songs so that our piano players get practice. Its time to add more expression and excitement to our separate piece: Buffalo Gals!

Voice Skills: review
Reading Skills: This will be where we place our emphasis this week. We'll fill out pages in our portfolios as well.
