Conrad Weber, Instructor

ECMS 5-6 Choir Class Syllabus

 

Welcome to the ECMS 5th & 5th Grade  Choir Class!  This is our second year of having a 5th and 6th grade choir, and we are excited about another great year.

 

Class Structure & Content:

  • Music Theory & Sight Singing:  learning to sing basic music notation (notes on lines and spaces) and count basic rhythms.

 

  • Music and Performance:  learning music of a variety of styles and time periods, and giving public performances.  We will perform Fall and Spring concerts, as well as other performances throughout the year.  

 

  • Music Appreciation:  studying, listening to, and/or watching a lot of different types  of music to help increase our musical understanding.

 

Grading

Grades in the choir class will be the combination of the following:

  1. Tests, quizzes, and class projects:  40%

  2. Class & concert participation: 60%



How Grades are Earned

  • Participating in class and performances

  • Theory tests and quizzes

  • Singing exams:  singing selected portions of the choir music by yourself or in small groups.  This will not be done in front of the other students.  

 

Class Fee:  a one-time fee of $15 must be paid within 3 weeks from the beginning of school.

This fee covers the cost of a choir T -Shirt for choir members.  This fee is also used for class supplies unique to a choir class if the shirt is less than $15.  We do not have a supply list for choir class.



Performing Attire:

  • For casual performances, students will wear their choir shirt and their uniform pants/shorts/skirts.  

  • For all formal concerts, students must be dressed the following way:

    • Girls:   Black and white colors, and skirts or dresses must be at least knee length.  Pants may not be jeans, and may not be skin tight.  Blouses/shirts must be modest.  No spaghetti straps or tank tops are allowed for professional performances.
