This set of 16 cards contain questions to help a listener or singer focus on aspects of good choral performance.
Each card addresses one specific skill. Questions are worded in a way to help the listener identify strengths as well as problem spots in the music and suggest ways to improve.
These cards are valuable rehearsal aids for conductors who are looking to focus their rehearsal time or need inspiration or guidance deciding what to rehearse.
Singers can use these cards as a way to help guide their performance or their self-assessment. Read a card aloud before a run-through, or have one student sit out and listen to the performance while holding one card and answering the questions on it.
These cards could also be used in a general music setting when studying or listening to vocal music.
Choir Listening Cards use accurate musical vocabulary and so are designed for middle or high school choirs. Elementary choir directors could easily use the cards for personal use, or edit the wording to reflect the skills and vocabulary they have been working on with their singers.
Through classroom use, these Choir Listening Cards have proven successful in helping middle school singers focus their listening, improve their ability to self-assess, and increase their engagement in the rehearsal process. By adding the social element and having students listen to each other with these cards, the impact is increased even more.
See how your rehearsals and music classes can improve with the focused listening guided by these Choir Listening Cards.
This product is provided in Powerpoint format so you have the ability to edit as needed for your classroom use.
