It will not be a “CHOIR” class but a dumping ground for misfits. And a class that will take more energy than you can imagine. They won’t want to sing and a real drain on your energy for the rest of the day. It would be easier to be a music app class where “performance “ is not in the curriculum. I had a similar class and hit the internet for all sorts of “musical” ideas and made it a weekly project for them to report on. Good luck
: I am presently at a AAA school that doesn't
: understand band. Currently I am teaching 7
: periods which is 4 band, 2 music app and 1
: choir class. Now I'm told my the MS
: principal that the one music app class will
: be MS Choir. No budget. All materials will
: come out of the puny Band budget. Also, I
: have no clue how to teach 'screaming band.'
: From what I gather talking to the band kids,
: most of them are going to choir next year
: cause it's new and it doesn't take as much
: effort as band.
: With this being said....is this workable or
: is it time to 'air up the tires.'
