Well, there’s not much to say other than it’s been a long week. Like most teachers, especially choir directors, we wish we could be in our classrooms teaching and singing and stressing over UIL coming up. The students and I were LOVING our pieces for UIL and making huge strides on learning the pieces. I do hope we’ll get to sing them together at some point and show everyone the amazing music we can make. 

 

Transferring to on-line or distance learning is such a huge hurdle for all, but especially for the performing arts. Most get into choir because they love music, but stay because of the family that is created. Keeping up the choir family is one of my biggest goals and biggest challenges. 

 

This week we were asked to come up with learning tasks to put on Schoology for students to continue their learning. Nothing new, just to build on what we have already taught. As choir directors we said time and time again this has been a huge challenge. Those activities we posted are not what we would normally do in class - we would sing!!  As hard as it is there is not a platform on-line that lets a group rehearse and hear each other in real time. Trust me! I’ve looked and choir directors have been discussing it (throughout the world) for the past couple weeks. We just want to get together and sing again.

 

If students have issues with what I send out via Schoology please reach out to me. These are not meant to bring stress, but to explore new ways to show skills we already have. 

 

Choir Leadership has come up with some ideas to help build community during this time.

 

  1. Big brother/sister & little brother/sister pen pal type idea. Students can sign up (voluntary of course) to be paired with a choir buddy. https://forms.gle/3p4M7S2xdGTpSrBp8
