Imagery and physical movement is a common practice in choir settings. But what happens if the singer hasn't experienced that image? Manipulatives are commonly used in elementary general classrooms and shouldn't stop there! This 4-hour workshop will highlight manipulatives and toys used in a choir setting to give singers physical interaction with the imaginations used by choral directors to create a desired sound. Choral music ranging in difficulty (unison, 2-part, SSA, SAB, SATB) will be used in conjunction with the "singing toys."
CDE Clock Hours* are available at all workshops for no extra cost!
Graduate Credit* is available through Adams State University for participating in all three workshops.
*Check out the Clock Hours & Credit FAQ page for more information.
