    The 3rd – 5th Grade Curriculum (including all of the above):

    • The students will maintain their own part and using proper breathing techniques and a pleasing tone, with and without accompaniments.
    • The students will use appropriate expressive and stylistic devices including dynamics, tone quality, phrasing, articulation and interpretation.
    • The students will blend vocal timbres, match dynamic levels and respond to the cues of the conductor when singing as part of a group.
    • I will also be offering a K-2 Chorus that will meet after school on Tuesdays from 2:30 – 3:45 pm.  Permission slips/Parent consent and an audition are required.
