Chorus Lesson Program Participation Letter

Attention all 6th, 7th, & 8th Grade Chorus members!! The Music Department is continuing to offer a Chorus Lesson Program!! You will have the opportunity to be given vocal training on technique, breath support, note reading, and ear training!! There will even be opportunities to learn tips and tricks for singing in small groups and as a soloist!! Like the Band Lesson program already in place, the lessons will meet once a week for 30 minutes on a rotating basis*, outside of the Chorus class and FLEX meeting times. The lesson will take place on either a Monday, a Tuesday, or a Thursday, and will be a pull-out. (It is on a volunteer basis--and it will not factor into the Chorus grade.)

*Students already enrolled in the Band Lesson program will have their lesson on Wednesdays (7th/8th) or Fridays (6th) during FLEX--every other week. If a weekly pull-out lesson is preferred, there must be a signed note from home stating it is approved to take you out of another 30-minute block per week--on top of your Band lesson time.

All Chorus students and their parent(s)/guardian(s) must read through, fill out, sign, and cut off the slip on the last page of this packet!! The slip must be returned to Mrs. Noonan by Friday, September 14, 2018!! A grade of "0" will be given until it is received!!
