In order to excel in
choral music, certain requirements must be met.
On a daily/weekly basis,
the student must: (80% of grade)
- Be in the chorus
room BEFORE the late bell and be ready to rehearse no more than 5 minutes after
the bell. (This time should be used for making sure your music folders are in
order and preparing for the rehearsal)
- Present a
positive attitude during the rehearsal – watch, listen, follow, and do not talk
in between warm-ups or songs.
- Hand in
assignments on time. These assignments should be completed to the best ability
of the student.
- Practice your
vocal music at home. Know what you are having trouble with and be prepared for
class. If you need extra help, do not hesitate to ask your teacher or another
On occasion, the student
must: (20% of grade)
- Attend all concerts and activities at which the choir
will function as a group. Performing in a group is a major focus of this class,
making attendance at all concerts mandatory. These performances are weighed
heavily into the course grade. All exceptions must be cleared by the student
with the choir director at least 24 hours in advance of the performance,
and a make up will be scheduled for a grade. Excuses should be of “emergency”
nature and will be left up to the discretion of the director. All unexcused
absences may result in two test grades of zero.
- Make ups for missed concerts can vary between a
singing exam or short written assignment.
I have read the Teacher
Expectations and Course Syllabus and have shared them with my parent/guardian.
