THIS EVENT IS POST-PONED UNTIL THE FALL – DATE T.B.D.
Come see a live class with fourth grade members of the Fairfield County Children’s Choir! The focus of our session will be on musical transitions, which can bring an element of surprise, creativity, and magic to lessons and rehearsals, while moving students seamlessly from one selection to the next. Participants will be provided with a toolkit of ideas and vocabulary to assist in planning. They will observe, discuss, and create their own musical transitions such as the transitions door, solfa ladder, human piano, magic wand, mystery song, poison rhythm, sneaky snake, solfa staircase, and more!
