Course Description: High school choir is an elective  performing arts ensemble class. Students are expected to sing with the group, daily. Most students will also sing alone or in small groups for voice lessons with Mrs. Albrecht on a weekly basis. Students will learn music history, theory, vocal technique and health, improvisation, and analyzation of music, and will perform. 

 

Grading: Grades will be based largely on daily participation, effort, and attitude. (Each week students will see “PEA” in the gradebook which reflects the above description.) 2 points are awarded each day for the “PEA” grade, and any excessive talking, disruption, not having materials, or simply not singing, will result in either half or no credit for that day. Points are entered into Infinite Campus as a weekly grade, so most weeks will have 8 or 10 “PEA” points. 

*Lessons are graded, as well as any assignments, quizzes, and projects. Performances are required and are factored into grades as well. 

 

Materials: Music will be provided by the school, as well as a sight-singing book which must be kept in good condition, or students will be charged to replace it. Students need to bring their own folder to keep music in, and must always have a pencil and water bottle. 

 

Performance Dress Code: High school choir has robes that will be worn for all concerts, except for the Pops concert in May. Students must still be dressed nice under the robe, including black pants or skirt/dress, and black dressy shoes. 

Clothing not acceptable for performances: sweat pants/shirts, dirty tennis shoes, crocs etc, ripped jeans, skirts or dresses that are shorter than school dress code, revealing tops including crop tops, and shirts with words on them. You are representing your school, community, your family and our music program when you perform, and it is important to dress as best as you possibly can to not only show respect for what we’re doing, but also so others will respect you and those around you. Act like you care!
