Boys Select Choir (Combined JV and Intermediate Boys) – Course Syllabus
Stephanie Hamilton, Director
Course Description and Goals: The Select Boys Choir course provides the means of building and maintaining a solid foundation in sight-singing and performance skills. This choir will compete in various UIL events during the school year. The course will utilize movable Do (solfege) and Kodaly hand signs. Through the application of skills acquired through this sight reading process, students will be empowered with an acute sense of quickly preparing new music. The students will continue to work selected pieces along with the sight-reading activities throughout the semester. The students will be given opportunities to perform the selected pieces and showcase skills learned through the semester.
