Choir 4th Q 08.09 Lesson Plans
Week: 04/20/2009 Instructor: Constance Knott Academics
Announcements: Solo/Ensemble contest is in two weeks. Next week non participants will go to study hall while the participants conduct recitals during choir rehearsal. This helps them get more authentic practice for their actual contest performance. Small groups as usual this week. All solo and ensemble lessons as scheduled.We are getting the stragglers to turn in their paper work.
Music: Memory of Shine On Me, Gloria, Happy Wanderer, Ahrirang. Need to refresh our contest pieces again. Continue work on Nothin' Gonna Stumble My Feet.
Voice Skills: As stated last week this is synthesis time: putting it all together and continuing to strive towards their own best singing. This is a very rewarding time of year to be in choir because they can perceive the improvement we've made as a group since last September.
Reading: Continue to do our exercises!
Listening and Paperwork: We will have different groups perform this week for the full choir and get feedback for them from their peers.
