A Note from Michael

Hi All,

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
For showcase on Nov. 7, please plan to wear black pants with your Carolers shirt.
Let’s finish this session out strong!
-Michael
