Choir 4th Q 06.07 Lesson Plans
Week: 03/26/2007 Instructor: Constance Knott Academics
Announcements: Unbelievable! It's 4th quarter, and early spring to boot! Well, our big week has finally arrived. We did a lot of recording, listening and analyzing last week. This week we'll work to get the very finest detail tuning done. Monday we'll take a fine tooth comb to our main piece as we listen to a recording of ourselves. We need to modify some vowels, phrasing, a couple of pitch problems and enhance our dynamic contrasts. Tuesday we'll do the same with our second piece. By Wednesday we should be putting a sheen on our performance. Thursday and Friday will entail singing on risers in the cafeteria. Remember, black shoes for the girls, black pants, black shoes, socks, and white shirt for the boys.We perform at 11:40. I'll update these plans when I find out our departure time from Walnut Grove and then Westbrook and give an approximate return time as well.
Voice Skills: We will work with vowels for blending and improving pitch.
Listening Skills: More analysis on Monday and Tuesday as we make improvements in our phrasing, and dynamic contrasts
