Hello families!

Your kids did some great work last night. We shaped some good vowels, talked about syllabic emphasis, the breathing mechanism, dynamics, along with the nationality of a few composers.

This week, make sure your young ladies and gentlemen have memorized “Ching-A-Ring Chaw” from last week (especially the last page), “I Will Sing with the Spirit”, and “How Can I Keep From Singing.” The last two are the first pieces that we will perform on the 23rd, so I need the next to rehearsals to ensure they are well memorized, as well as polishing them up to performance level.

Again, thank you all for all the work you’re doing!
