Morning Vocalizing: (Tuesdays & Thursdays 7:45 – 7:55 AM) Waken your vocal range with this 10-minute vocal warmup – a great way to start your day and help relax and strengthen your vocal chords.
Lunch Hour Note Hashing: (Wednesdays 11:45 AM-12:45 PM) Grab some lunch & join Susie as she uses various techniques to learn the pitches of every part in the choral score – a great way to learn your own pitches, too. Various songs will be used, TBA.
Happy Hour Solfège/IPA: (NEW TIME Tuesdays 7:00-8:00 PM) Want to learn to sightread, but not sure where to begin? Grab your favorite drink and have some fun learning solfège in the comfort of your home and while muted on Zoom. 😉 We will also learn various symbols used in the International Phonetic Alphabet (the way singers learn to sing in different languages). A fun class for those of all levels of music-reading ability.
Happy Hour Score Study: (NEW TIME Wednesdays 7:00-8:00 PM) Get more from your score! Grab your favorite drink and dig into the nuances of the choral score. Improve your musicianship and explore how to read the choral score waaaaay beyond just your pitches and lyrics. We will be using composer Dan Forrest’s Jubilate Deo score for this class.
Ear Training: Use simple 4-part songs from the Taizé tradition and others to improve your aural skills like intonation, deciphering timbre, and exploring tone color.
