Choir - Weeks Two and Three

Music Activities | HS Choir

Choose an activity.

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

Plan & Perform

Request a family meeting and ask, because the whole family may be home all day now, if they can help you set up your practice/singing time at designated time. What’s convenient for everyone in your family? Agree on a time, and use it to practice or perform at your regular volume to exercise your voice each day and keep in good shape.

Listen

Watch a vocal master class on YouTube (Thomas Hampson at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VkkXizbocio, Joyce DiDonato, or Renee Fleming), and write down what you learned from it. What new concepts did you learn? How can you apply what you learned to your own solo performance?

Practice

Always take time to warm up your voice and practice your music. 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 your scales.
Keep a journal of your observations for each day’s practice.

Create

Create a virtual Choir as a project. Research and write down how to do it by exploring YouTube videos, Eric Whitacre website, TED, etc. Share it with your classmates and collaborate.

Sight Reading

Use your own music/ sight reading packet or use Eyes and Ears Sight-Singing. Choose a page or subject. Mark at least 3 lines with solfege and sing with hand sign. Or try at least three lines in steady tempo at sightreadingfactory.com (choose “Voice”, then level, etc).

Vocal Technique

Watch three YouTube videos on the subject of Breath Support Warm Up, and record in a journal all the exercises introduced. Which one is most helpful to you and how is it effective? What do you feel physically? What did you learn from it? Come up with a set of breath exercises you would use if you were a choir director.

Theory/Ear Training

Download Earpeggio app and explore categories, i.e. "Basic Melodic Dictation", “Basic Rhythm Dictation”. Add more categories under “+ Sign” i.e., “Minor Scale Identification”. How far can you progress within each category? Choose a level appropriate to you and start.
Also remember to try lessons at

Music History

Research musical periods and create a timeline of musical periods. Repeat assignment and add representative composers, musical characteristics, styles and major genres for a period each week. Listen and learn a song from a genre in correct style.
