  • Blog = short for weblog. A quick way to self-publish to the internet. Allows for author content and reader comment.
  • Students are more likely to check websites where information is constantly being updated.
  • Information you use often…you can post it as a link on the sidebar, or repost if needed

  • Our students want to be more personally involved in their choral experience…no longer top-down teaching…they know more than we do about some things, we can learn from them as much as they can learn from us…they want to be KNOWN

  • A rhythm game helps us to physically internalize the concept of notes happening on very defined beats. It is fun, so we will keep doing it for a while, trying very hard to make sure all our "notes" are in time. This is important in choir, especially with >200 of us, because we need to change notes at exactly the same time to get a crisp, not mushy, sound.
  • omg.... that game is so addicting. I got a 4860 and didn't die. I think rhythm is important for so many reasons. When you are working as an ensemble, if you are not singing at the right time, it makes the whole choir sound muddy. Not good...
  • THIS POST IS ABOUT NOT BEING AFRAID
  • With this post (and as more people comment), it's quite obvious that being wrong doesn't matter in choir rehearsal. Not only do we have plenty of time to fix anything, we have time to go beyond technically correct, to transfigure our music into an artistic expression.
  • THIS POST IS ABOUT BUILDING COMMUNITY WITH 150 PEOPLESuggestions: dinner together, smaller groups to sing together, facebook, retreat, games, talent showTHEN SOMEONE TEACHES YOU SOMETHING YOU DIDN’T KNOW
  • It gives our students (choir members) a voice. Even if the rehearsal is still director-led, the members of the choir are “known” better to the director and to each other. Gives them a forum to express themselves in ways they might not be able to in the confines of the rehearsal. (Talk about tour phenomenon…that the choir really knows each other after tour is over…maybe)
