Lesson Plans
SR. HS Choir 4th Q 12.13 Lesson Plans
Week: 03/18/2013 Instructor: Constance Knott Academics
Large Group contest is behind us. We earned two excellent ratings and one superior.
Now many students will start diligent work on solos and ensembles. At the present we have 15 solos, 8 duets, 2 trios, and 2 mixed ensembles ready to go. Probably not all will be ready for May 5, but we will give everything time, effort, and attention before that happens.
Shirley Iverson, Deb Warner, and Joyce Madson will be volunteering time to assist the students
We need to turn our attention to some standards work that got left behind and unfinished while we worked in earnest on contest music:
1. vocabulary
2. song analysis
3. solfege quiz
4. hand in listening analyses/compare notes to each other
1. Sand in My Shoes (reading parts a capella)
2. Praise His Holy Name (Gospel style singing)
3. To Music (Romantic style and again reading parts without piano help)
4. Gypsy Fiddler (rhythms, diction, story telling, dynamic contrast)
