Lesson 25 Product Description


This program is cumulative. For best results, start with Lesson 1:

Link to Lesson 1 of S-Cubed! Forbidden Pattern

After preparing our beginning sight singers for months and arming them carefully and methodically with numerous tools to fill their Sight-Singing tool box through successful unison sight singing work, we are ready to tackle Two-Part Sight Singing! All of our careful preparation will pay off in this very exciting moment on the S-Cubed journey. The best part of it all is that the materials and ideas they are learning now in this Two-part sight singing lesson will help you and your students enormously in your performance repertoire too!

In this 27 slide Power Point, 3-day lesson, we focus on connecting the dots. In past lessons, we taught our students important skills through two-part rhythm exercises. Now, we will take the same concepts from the rhythm work of the previous S-Cubed lessons and transfer them to PITCHES in the Two-Part Sight Singing examples. As always, the examples in the lessons are custom built to teach specific concepts like recognizing unison pitches and unison rhythms. The examples are specifically designed to work for the beginning middle school student. In other words, the problem areas are written to be obvious and clear so we get the answers we are looking for as we help make them literate, successful Two-Part Sight Singers. We work in this lesson to arm them with yet even more tools for their toolbox of successful sight singing, except this time, all of the tools are aimed specifically at how to survive and thrive in Two-Parts. We learn about “Recovery Strategies” and much more.

In this lesson, you will receive:
*3 sight singing examples
*3 rhythm examples
*3 written/oral warm ups
*Written guidance on tuning ideas to improve intonation
*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 2 weeks 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.

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!
