No homework is required, although I will encourage students will use the feedback and techniques from class to continue rehearsing their songs.
Please come prepared to share a 90 second selection from any song (usually a verse and a chorus). You can sing a cappella or with a track. Students will be asked to stand while they sing so I can monitor their stage presence and body movement. Please set your device up in a space with good lighting. A microphone may be used but is not required. We will be taking notes, so grab a notebook and a pen before class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learners will be assessed by their peers (as carefully guided by the teacher) as well as their instructor. The student will receive verbal and written feedback from the teacher.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
