I hope that you are well. As you prepare for summer vacation, we wanted to share with you the PPAS Vocal Summer Assignment.
Next year, we will be implementing a weekly digital practice log for all Vocal Technique classes. Simply click the link provided: Vocal Technique: Practice Log
and submit weekly. We're asking that you track a minimum of 60 minutes per week of practice.
Even though school's out, you need to sing and/or vocalize everyday! Acceptable entries include: Technique Warm-ups, Pronunciation practice, Rhythm and/or Melody work, Listening to various examples via YouTube, completion of Jury prep assignments, etc.
In the fall, we will sing Schubert's Mass in G Major
and each grade level will prepare an opera scene (More about the opera scenes later). Please use the attached PDF of the Schubert score and this link to CyberBass – Choral Midi Learning Files
to begin your preparation. On CyberBass, each movement has individual parts emphasized with piano accompaniment. Just press your section: Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass; click the play button in the middle of the page; and following along with the score.
As always, please let me know if you have any questions.
