Great rehearsal today! Here is a brief summary.
Warm-ups: small & big body shapes, lemon face & lion face (body), wind/owl/witch/speaking/whispering/etc. voices (vocal exploration)
Welcome Song: "Good evening, I'm feeling good today" -- experience ABACA form with student-led movement creation, then learned about how to represent the first part of that form with letters (ABA).
Pat-a-Pan: rhythm echoes with rhythm syllables, then with drum
Pat-a-Pan: singing verse 1, 2, 3 and the end, with a focus on verse 1
All Around the Brickyard (concepts: steady beat, student-led movement creation, F+ song)
Little Drummer Boy: review full song, focus on fixing a pitch error "our finest gifts to bring pa ra" and continuing to polish verses 2&3.
Please keep your eye out for a recording to practice the rhythm sections in the middle of Pat-a-Pan.
