Thanks for a fun and productive rehearsal on Monday. With only one rehearsal left until our class showcase, I want to give you all some direction on how to practice and what you should be focusing on right now.
Here are our priorities, in order of importance:
- Showcase Material. This includes the following songs:
- Joy to the World – This one is sitting pretty good as is. Keep it polished.
- O Come All Ye Faithful – Here’s a video to help you learn the Latin lyrics!
- Glory – Again, another good one we’ve practiced a lot.
- Angels we Have Heard – Make sure to review this one and ask any questions.
- *It’s About the Cross* – PLEASE practice with the tracks in Drive. I want this song ready to polish next Wednesday so we don’t waste time having to learn it in class.
- A handful of other songs that frankly need work:
- White Christmas – Please review this one. There were a lot of missed notes tonight.
- Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas – There are practice tracks in the drive. Use them.
- Jingle Bell Rock – This one is really coming together, just make sure to practice!
- New Music – Things we’ve learned recently or will learn soon:
- Go Tell it on the Mountain – Music and tracks are in the drive. Please have it ready to polish on Wednesday.
- Deck the Halls – Worked on in class last week. Continue working on your own.
- We Wish you a Merry Christmas – Worked on in class on Monday.
- Jingle Bells – Worked on in class on Monday.
