About the course

Elementary Choir will focus on developing your singing voice, singing as an ensemble, and building music literacy and solfege skills. We will use singing games, unison and partner songs, and rounds to build our repertoire and develop our musical ears for singing in harmony. Students are expected to listen and sing along with their practice CD and music folder at least 10-15 minutes every other day. We will give a joint concert with the Generation Gap Concert Band at the end of the semester, which means we will have one dress rehearsal and one performance outside of class.
