One of the ways that you can inject energy and excitement into your rehearsal process is through the use of special projects. A number of years back at my previous school, the school had provided every student with an iPad. With this new technology at our fingertips, I wanted to come up with some way that my singers could utilize their iPads to engage with our music in a different way. That’s when I got the idea for a movie project.
I divided my singers into small groups and had them each create a short movie, telling the story of one of the pieces of music we were working on. At the beginning, they thought I was off my rocker. But by the end of the project, they were loving it!
In today’s episode of the podcast, I will discuss how we did the project, and tell you how you can get your own copy of the handouts and rubrics I used for the project!
