2019 LEARNING THE SONGS

(updated Jan 4)

Because our singers live in a triangle 130 miles north to south, and 30 miles east to west, and with the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges to cross, rehearsing weekly is difficult.

Also, as there are long-distance singers who will be joining the choir for the national festival audition, I've designed a program where we can be learning the same things at the same pacing. All tasks are what you should be doing as a singer anyway. You just happen to be documenting it so we can all be part of a functional choir.

 

Assignments for each song are:

1. Take a picture of the lyrics handwritten onto a paper. Email it to estochoir, a yahoo mail box.

2. Make a pitch-check video on the designated portion of the song with the TE Tuner app. This will be posted on the song page.

3. Make a video of you singing the whole song with the mp3 of your part. Your video does not need to be perfect, but should show you've learned it well.

4. Make a video of you singing with the conducting video that will be posted on the song pages at least a week prior to the due date.

 

TURNING IN VIDEOS
