To all of those enrolled in chorus: WORK DOES NOT END WHEN CLASS DOES! You must be listening to your part on a daily basis in order to help further along the group. We are only as strong as our weakest link..don’t be that link! Use the “Chorus Practice Parts and Assignments” page at the top to find your part and listen to it again and again.
There are still some of you that need to join the Edmodo group (for Senior and Junior Chorus). It is imperative that you join these groups, as the assignments are meant to HELP your Musical Understanding and push you to be better musicians.
Let’s strive for excellence, never settle for second best and work like crazy to get there! The reward will be well worth the hours of practicing and we get to make beautiful music together as a group! Can it get any better?! I don’t think so! :D
For those of you enrolled in Jr. Chorus or Sr. Chorus you must join the Edmodo group for your respective chorus. It is mandatory that you join otherwise your overall average will be affected negatively.
If you do not have an edmodo account or forgot your password, here are the steps to making an account.
- log on to http://www.edmodo.com
- click the “I’m a student” button in the log in box
- enter all of your information
- for Jr. Chorus click this link https://www.edmodo.com/home#/join/aea13d6b47c589f73f5f06f069816eaa
- for Sr. Chorus click this link https://www.edmodo.com/home#/join/190e5f07c7e1ed01425ad1cbc39d9112
The sooner everyone is signed up the better! If you were already signed into your group and you are in that same chorus this year, you are all set. If you are not sure if you are signed up, log into your edmodo and see if your chorus is listed as one of your groups. Everyone must be signed up by the end of the first week of school, no exceptions. Edmodo will be used to provide a space for you to interact with your fellow classmates and myself and a place to hand in assignments that you will have throughout the year. They will never be long assignments, however they will be extremely important and will be directly impacted from our class time.
Please make sure you get signed up! Remember, if having access to a computer at home is a difficulty you have my computers, the library, the computer labs, and multiple teachers with laptop carts as a resource to get you to complete the assignments in the upcoming year. See You all soon! And don’t forget to browse the choral practice parts over the summer!
Throughout the summer, Chorus practice parts WILL be updated to kick start the learning process so that in September we can start diving into the music from day 1.
The practice parts are located on a separate page of the blog labeled “Chorus Practice Pars and Assignments”. Check the page throughout the summer to get an idea of some of the songs we will be singing in the fall and…start learning and listening!
Be diligent and enjoy your summer! I will see you in September
