Teaching Choir in a Non-Choir Room Space
Date: August 3, 2010
Dear ChoralNet Friends:
My 2 beginning choirs (6th grade) have been moved to the Auditorium to accommodate an extra band class and an extra orchestra class brought about by my district's change from JH to MS. My older auditioned choirs still get to rehearse in my room. So, I'll be teaching choir on the go. I'm interested in advice in the following areas:
1. Efficient way to maintain 2 rehearsal spaces.
2. Management techniques most useful for 11-year-old singers rehearsing in an auditorium.
3. Benefits of everyday rehearsal in an auditiorium.
4. Additional equipment necessary to teach successfully in an auditorium.
Thanks for your help!
