PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Build A Better Concert

I have been performing since I was very young, and since becoming a music teacher have always strived to bring elements of the professional theatre to my concerts. As a young teacher I changed schools many times and was struck by how often schools seemed to get caught in the “we’ve always done it this way” mentality regarding concerts. I’d like to share the knowledge and skills that I’ve learned in the last few years so that other teachers can also do away with the long, boring concerts.

When we think of Christmas Concerts, we tend to think of two MCs standing at a podium, with a pile of papers and an arsenal of bad jokes – usually puns. Mrs. So-and-so’s class is announced. They will sing such-and-such. The class slowly files onto the stage. Mrs. So-and-so accompanies them onto the stage, straightens the rows, and generally fusses about. When Mrs. So-and-so has finally left the stage, the music plays. The children begin to sing along with the recording, including the original vocals that can often be heard over the general murmuring of the children. There are some awkward, predictable actions to accompany the lyrics. The song ends, and Mrs. So-and-so returns to the stage to usher the kids off. The next class must wait until they have left the stage, which takes a while.

Of course we all recognize that parents attend Christmas Concerts just to see their child perform. This is easily evidenced by concerts I have attended where the number of audience members in attendance has been cut nearly in half by the end of the concert, due to the large number of people who have gone home once their own children have performed.

WE CAN DO BETTER THAN THIS.
