Making Music Together, Apartdrive.google.com/open?id=102rSQoVnD1AFubXK0Y2jLELELo371CuR! It is uncertain when we can meet with our beloved bands together in person again, so I have developed a way for us to embrace this challenge by performing music together - apart! This is an opportunity to welcome members into our VIRTUAL band from all over the world! THAT is something to smile about! All levels, all instruments, all geographic locations are welcome. There is a small fee to reserve the seat in order to cover part of the cost of the project. If it is truly a financial burden, the seat reservation fee can be waived.
Thank you to Kelly Proznick for the resource Solo Voice Unit for Secondary Choirs. It is described as "This is a process based solo singing activity, focusing on the intentional development of individual rehearsal skills and an embrace of all the "lumps" involved in the slow development of a solo song."
Thank you to Jonathan Krueger for this resource Level-Up Singing. He describes it as "An assessment tool that equips students and teacher to measure growth while using Mad-Minutes, Note Pyramids, and Rhythm Boot Camp." All resources have been posted in the Resource Room as well.
Here is the audio recording of the CMEBC Town Hall on Wed June 24.
