ECMS 7-8 Choir Class Syllabus
Welcome to the ECM Choir Class! The ECMS Choir is a performing ensemble comprised of 7th -8th grade students. I look forward to working with another great group of students this year.
Class Structure & Content:
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.
Grades in the choir class will be the combination of the following:
Tests, quizzes, and class projects:: 40%
Class & concert participation: 60%
How Grades are Earned
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 polo-style shirt that will be worn for all choir performances
