Sweet sounds in my ears

September 21, 2018

It's already Friday, and I have been frantically busy , so this blog is late -  but I have not forgotten what a great rehearsal we had on Monday.  The NoteWorthy Singers are sounding  great.  It's a joy to teach when you are so dedicated and attentive.

 

I ask you all to be patient with yourself and take on a little bit at a time.  I have corrected the Alto mp3 of Snow, Snow.  Will get it out to you next week when Charlene returns.  

 

Here's a little review of what we accomplished on Monday. 

Monday's rehearsal was brought to you by the sound 'ah" - placed in just the right place.  

1.  Mary Did You Know - a very careful singing of measures 9 - 25 with correct rhythms - way to go!  the challenge is to not let ourselves get lazy about keeping it accurate and rhythmical.  

 

2.  Somewhere in My Memory - measures 1 - 30, and 44 - end.

 

3.  Snow, Snow Beautiful Snow - letter A, B and C.- the semi-tone progressions in the men's parts are well done. Check out letter E and K - while not exactly  the same it's pretty close.

 

4.  Yemayah - alto  up to drum fill - keep thinking 6 beats to a bar.  It was coming along nicely!

And - did you hear how accurate the men were?  WOW - it's going to work

 

5.  One Song - review 

There was some great sound coming from our second sopranos this week.  Thank you.  I still can't figure out why the numbers are so low, but it will work out.  Keep up the great work.

 

 

So this week,

1.Somewhere in my Memory - 31 -44 - there is a lot very familiar here so it won't take long to learn it.

 

2. Snow, Snow beautiful snow : - this week we will look at letter D - 

 

3. A Merry Christmas Wish - this is a partner song - i.e. a few melody's sung together.  - always perfect for the closing.  I suspect you will have it learned in no time.  I do not have the recording finished yet and it may be delayed by a week or so, but it will be coming.  

 

4.  Yemaya - tenor only -  rhythms.  

 

5. The Lesser Joys of Christmas

 

*Get Happy (needed for the October singout) -

 

*My Favourite Things.

* - for singouts till new rep is learned.
