Want your singers to "read music" but don't know where to start? Worried that teaching literacy will take away from concert preparation time? Want to get away from note-plunking and rote learning? You will leave this session ready to teach all your singers to be literate musicians. This hands-on workshop will cover the basics of the Movable Do system of Solfège (including hand-signs) and how to structure your teaching to mirror the way we learn spoken language. In only a few minutes per rehearsal your singers can begin learning repertoire without piano and develop better leadership, intonation and understanding.
