This program is cumulative in nature. For best results, begin with Lesson 1:
Our students are now sight singing in 2-parts, but what if it doesn’t go as planned? What will they do? Stop singing and stare at you?
No! We must arm them with new tools to help them be successful as they work to develop confidence in their own ability to sight sing successfully when they are split in half. In 2-part sight singing, there are some new strategies for our singers to learn. We simply have to teach them!
In this penultimate lesson of the S-Cubed Series 1, we begin introducing our students to recovery strategies and important listening skills that are specifically useful in 2-part sight-singing. The exercises in this lesson are custom built to teach the new 2-part tools that your children need to add to their toolbox in order to “beat the page”…and the best part is that these new tools will have far-reaching, fantastic positive impact on the repertoire you are working on in your classroom. With the progression of each S-Cubed lesson, we are creating smarter and better choral music singers.
In this lesson, you will receive:
*3 sight singing examples
*3 rhythm examples
*3 written/oral warm ups
*As always, you get links to customized video teaching tips for each daily lesson
*And you get videos of Mr D actually teaching the specific lesson to his beginners as he prepares them for their adjudicated festival event that is about 1 week away at the time these videos were created. At that event, they will have to successfully sight sing in Two-Parts at the level you are seeing in the examples included in this lesson!
The procedures in this Lesson are similar to all of the previous S-Cubed lessons: Written/Oral Warm Up/Two-Part Group Rhythm Exercise/Optional Forbidden Pattern and Follow the Hand/Sight Singing Tonality prep/Sight Singing Example.
This method is cumulative in nature. Teachers should begin with Lesson 1 and implement each lesson progressively and regularly.
Your students will stop moaning when you pull out the Sight Singing materials with S-Cubed! It is the 21st century way to improve how you teach Sight Singing. It is carefully progressive in sequence in a manner that encourages and increases the chances of success for your Upper Elementary and Middle School students each and every day. The daily success helps them to be more likely to enjoy the process of learning to Sight Sing.
The method is developed by a real teacher in a real classroom. S-Cubed is like a teacher workshop that includes lesson plans and lesson guidance by a teacher who is using it in his classroom everyday. These are real materials that are used in my classroom daily.
S-Cubed is the perfect system to use in the Chorus or General Music Classroom with inexperienced students. They will love “beating the page”!
One successful step at a time…The S-Cubed way! Start with Lesson 1 today, and with consistent implementation, your young students will be Sight Singing a capella in two parts with difficult rhythms and steps/skips combined in a matter of months just like the students in the video links.
We’ve come a long way! It’s all documented as I created these lessons in real time. Our little reality show is almost over! I hope the lessons are working for you!
It’s real. It’s proven. It works....the 21st Century Way!
Not quite ready for that commitment?
