Music Activities | High School Choir


Perform

Perform your favorite songs or choir pieces to your family in a mini-recital.

Write down “a star and a wish” (what went well and what improvement you will make on it). You can repeat the assignment until you can sing all songs smoothly.  

Listen

Find and listen to two recordings of your favorite song/choral piece performed by different artists/groups. Write a journal entry of your comparative analysis, paying attention to details (tone quality, intonation, breath support, rhythmic accuracy, interpretation, phrasing and presentation). What’s your preference?

Practice

Take time to warm up your voice and practice any song.

Which warm-up works well for your voice? Which aspect of vocal technique are you working on? Write down your favorite warm up routine, and don’t forget scales.

Set a focus for the day’s practice, and keep your breath going!

Record yourself. 

 

Create

Choose ten of your favorite pieces of music and create your own top 10 playlist entitled “xx’s Top 10”. Write a commentary and explain why each piece is so dear to you. Post in unlisted Youtube channel and send the link, or send the titles and your commentary to your teacher.   

Choose an activity.

Complete at least three activities this week. Submit a response for each activity you complete to your choir teacher.
