Lesson Plans
High School Choir 9-12 2nd Q 13.14 Lesson Plans
Week: 10/28/2013 Instructor: Constance Knott Academics
We have a great start on Veteran's Day piece and one Christmas piece.
Our curriculum will be in full swing this week
Voice Skills: We worked a lot on breath energy to enhance blend last week. We will continue with that while we add 'resonance' and work to get a 'ring' into the sound, and a fullness.
We will start our anatomy work with breath production
Music Literacy Skills: We are making great headway through the C Major and a minor reading exercises. Students continue to work with intervals, scales understanding, and the use of hand signs. We will start working the key of G and e minor as well as more emphasis on rhythms and drum playing. We will do more dictations as well
Music Analysis and Listening Analysis: We will finish up the CD from SMSU, hand out new vocabulary sheets, two easy song analysis forms, and a new guide to analyzing rhythm. We will practice with it on I Saw Three Ships
Also we will review O Be Joyful and record ourselves.
