Song Learning Procedure:

This may take multiple class times to go through each of the steps. Very few songs can be sung without help on the first day.

  1. Listen to the song sung as a whole (Usually one verse and chorus)
  2. Repeat phrases in a call and response form
  3. Put phrases together to sing larger chunks of the whole
  4. Sing the whole together
  5. Work on difficult phrases using “la” “bum” or solfege.
  6. Sing the song without help.
