Music Ensembles

Thanks to all who have completed the short survey about our first performance time. I appreciate your feedback!

Soundwave Choir - Things are really starting to come together. The Soundwave Choir has been working on memorizing melodies and lyrics to four songs. They are learning the basics of singing in two-part harmony, and they are all doing a great job. 

Instrumental Ensemble - This is a very hard-working group. It's really neat to have so many different instruments and players come together. Right now we are focusing on three songs. Some of the players play chords while others play the melody. They are working on how to balance these sounds together while they continue to learn notes and rhythms. 

Accent Choir - This group makes me smile and laugh every rehearsal. They are doing a great job remembering the melody and lyrics for their four songs. They really seem to love to sing together, and they are sounding great. We have also been working on correct singing posture and proper b…

Music in Film projects 

Music in Film students have been hard at work composing music to accompany various videos and photographic pictures. Check out some of their amazing compositions by clicking the link above. There are 4 videos that are made without a video image...just sound. Please click on those to listen, and click on other videos to watch visual images with music. MIF students have worked diligently on making their music match one of the key qualities of music in film. Those are to set the mood for a scene, depict a certain character, evoke emotion, or reflect a certain time/place in the film. See if you can tell what the aim of each piece of music could be from the list above. :) Enjoy!! (And as this is my first time trying to share videos and such through a blog I hope it works.)
