  • Instructional Strategies in the Choral Classroom

    Todays Topics of Discussion: 1. Why do we rehearse outside of class? How do you design rehearsals outside

    of class time?/ When do you rehearse?

    2. Where are the biggest gaps with new members vs. veterans to your program?

    3. What are some strategies to close the gaps?

  • Rehearsals!

    In order for a choir to reach its potential several different types of rehearsal are needed:

    1. Full choir: All sections all at once. Can be done by one leader/ teacher. Used to paint the big picture

    2. Sectional rehearsals: Medium sized rehearsals with one section at a time. Requires more teachers/leaders to do more than one sectional rehearsal at a time. Easier to focus on gaps in the choir.

    3. Individual practice: This can either be a voice lesson format or simply a student practicing at home. This is a good habit to build!

  • When/ How do you do it?

  • Where are the gaps?

    Generally speaking, what is the biggest gap between a newcomer and a veteran of your program?

    So what? Share ideas to fill in the gaps.

  • For example:

    Tone/ breath support: New singers have trouble singing on the breath.

    Exercises to fix: lip buzzing. Switching between vowel and lip buzz/ text and lip buzz.
