middle school vocal music
Date: May 25, 2014
During my teaching career, I have taught high school theater and General Music K-6. Next year, my school district has moved me to a K-8 school that they would like to change into an "arts academy". I am excited and already scheming up new lessons for my students -- drama lessons, arts integration lessons . . . but I have not yet worked with middle school vocalists.
Could you tell me:
1. Your top three priorities for middle school choir
2. Your top three pieces for middle school choir
3. Your top three concerns when teaching middle school choir
I have had a FANTASTIC fifth grade chorus this year -- I can teach them anything, but this will be my first time dealing with changing voices. I am looking for your advice and successes to help my students next year.
