Welcome to Vocal Music!


Show Choir

Students perform high-energy, popular music in at least three public concerts and seasonal competitions for which they demonstrate proficiency and are given self-assessment and teach assessment. Students are given exams dealing with music theory and vocal technique during each semester. These exams involve open-ended essays and critical thinking skill problems. Students are given regular written and singing assessments based on vocal and music language proficiency. All activities are hands-on and performance-based as students are learning to manipulate their voices and hone their skills as a vocal musician. The creation of vocal harmonies subsequent to multi-part singing and improvisation will occur in frequent voice labs. Opportunities for choreography in seasonal performances will also be hands-on.
