This Is Me: Singing/Vocal Exploration (Ages 10+)
In this course, students will experience a virtual vocal rehearsal in which they will learn and perform an excerpt from the hit song featured in The Greatest Showman, "This is Me". Vocal parts will be taught and reinforced aurally, visually, and kinesthetically through a call and response method paired with slides offering visual cues for entrances and physical motions aligning with pitches. Throughout rehearsal, community building activities will allow these individuals to transform into a supportive community of learners.
