Overall objectives for all Jackson Christian choruses:

●  Students will be exposed to a wide variety of vocal music that includes both sacred and secular classical literature as well as current pop and show tunes.

●   Students will learn to sight read sheet music.

●  Students will learn proper techniques of vocalizing through group warm-ups and sectional singing.

●  Students will learn to identify basic parts of written music as well as other 
music fundamentals such as rhythmic skills and ear training.

●  Students will work together as a team, embracing and modeling the idea of 
ensemble singing whether in small groups or with the chorus as a whole.

●  Students will gain positive performance experience in a supportive environment. 


Grading for General Chorus: 

All students are receiving participation grades each week for their focus and effort during class. This group is doing an excellent job, but if any grades drop to a "C" we will contact parents and make sure they are aware. There are no homework assignments for this class. Students will be expected to participate in two formal concerts, the Fall and Christmas shows. In the Spring, we will do an informal show that involves non-choral style music and features small groups of students as well as a few soloists. Participation in these concerts will constitute students' test grades.  




 "And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, 

giving thanks to God the Father through him."
