Lesson Plans
Choir 4th Q 08.09 Lesson Plans
Week: 05/18/2009 Instructor: Constance Knott Academics
Announcements: Tuesday is concert day!! Hope you can come and be in our audience, we are definitely looking forward to an evening of presenting great vocal music! The recital is at 6:30, and we have 18 different performances that hour. The concert starts at 7:30 with the Choralaires, Boys' 50's and Vocal Jazz followed by the choir.
Other happenings: The students will be working on a piece for graduation and winding down! We still have some popular song presentations to complete and on Friday the students will take a written test. Still need a lot of them to get in their Blessed Be paper. I will strive to be caught up on grades by Wednesday.
We usually do a year end review; closure on what worked, what didn't, goals for next year, students advice and suggestions. We might do an all-favorites two day set. Each class can request a song that we have done in the past that they would like to sing for pure enjoyment.
We are also going to look into the possibility of taking the choir to the nursing home for a mini-concert.
Skills: Never stop working on breathing and improving our tone... we'll experiment with some new exercises from a book I just bought.
