Sing, say, dance, and play! Every day an exciting adventure awaits my students when they enter my music classroom, a.k.a. Ms. K.'s House of Music. We sing, say, dance, and play to experience music at its fullest!
I teach music to sixth-eighth grade students in a STEAM public school in Missouri.
My students range from middle class to poverty level, and some also experience violence in their neighborhoods on a daily basis. Sometimes music is the only solace to their day.
Despite their economic differences, all of my students are eager to express themselves through music. Each day they enter the music room with excitement and an eagerness to learn.
My students love to sing! They love being in our choir and rehearsing together. They also love rehearsing at home. I know how unusual that last sentence sounded, but it’s true: my choir students love choir homework! They will beam with pride when they come to choir class already knowing their parts! We need a year subscription to Choral Tracks so that they all can rehearse their parts at home and in small groups during choir rehearsal.
Choral Tracks is an online resource that gives my students the highest quality, professionally sung rehearsal tracks for all levels, promoting independent, accurate, and expressive singing.
I want my choir students to be the best they can be as a singing ensemble. Having access to quality recorded rehearsal tracks will allow my students the chance to grow further not only individually but as a choir as well. Imagine how far I can take them during class time if they already know their parts! Oh, the music we could make!
Thank you for considering helping my young singers on their journey towards making beautiful music!
