6th and 7th Grade Choruses- How to Get Them on Parts
Date: October 20, 2014
So, I am a first year teacher, and while I have worked with HS groups before, this is my first time teaching middle school. I have some boys even in 6th grade chorus whose voices are starting to change. We typically sing SA music, and some of that is getting to be a struggle. I'm really not sure what to do get those boys focusing on pitch, or what repertoire to choose come next semester when they'll be further along in their change.
I also have a 7th grade chorus. My sopranos are very confident, as are most of my guys, but my altos do not sing out, and typically migrate to melody under pressure. Please help! I will take any advice.
