 Welcome to Sixth Grade Choir! I am so excited to have you in class this year. My goal is that our classroom be a safe, supportive environment, where you will gain self-confidence and a lifelong love of music. - Mrs. Schroeder

 

In choir you will:

1.  Sing using correct vocal production techniques  

2.  Sight-read simple rhythms and melodies

3.  Experience singing unison and 2-part music in a variety of styles and musical periods

4.  Demonstrate good stage presence, poise, and proper concert etiquette

5.  Develop teamwork skills and leadership qualities

 

Expectations:

Follow all school rules

Be on time with Materials (music binder, pencil, agenda with conduct card)

No Food or Gum, Water Only!

Respect yourself and others

 

Consequences: Conduct cards and loss of participation points

 

Grading:

Rehearsal Participation: 55%

Your participation in rehearsals will effect not only yourself but the rest of the members of the choir.  Each student’s rehearsal participation will be evaluated weekly based on the following:

Attitude

Effort/Posture

Respect for classmates, teacher, and materials

Focus

Being on Time with Materials

 

Performance Participation and Performance Etiquette: 25%

There are 4 performances scheduled for this school year.  Please mark concert dates on your calendars ASAP so that you are able to attend.   Students will receive full credit if they wear appropriate performance attire, (see below) and make a positive contribution to the group while performing.  Also, students are expected to be respectful while in the audience, and stay throughout the duration of the concert. Only illness, family emergencies, and pre-arranged absences will be excused absences.  In the case of an unavoidable absence, a parent will need to notify Mrs. Schroeder prior to the concert.  An excused absence can be made up by submitting a one page paper on a musical topic chosen by the teacher.  An unexcused absence will result in a zero.

Performance attire for 6th grade is an AMS choir polo, blue jeans (no holes), and your nicest close toed shoes.  Polos are $14, and I will be sending home order forms/collecting money for these.
