    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I strongly recommend this course! Chamber Choir is a completely inclusive, diverse, and immersive experience. The instructor, Michael Brown, focuses on applying music theory and meaning to the musical literature we receive. It is not enough to only sing right notes, but to sing healthy. Michael Brown focuses on vocal technique and breath. He invites professionally trained singers to lead seminars and hold master classes with students. In the classroom, there is so much more than pretty sounds being produced.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the most memorable moments would be performing at KMEA and collaborating with middle schools in the district. It was great honor to be invited to KMEA and we performed well. I learned how to control my anxiousness and how to focus on a objective. Collaborating with middle schools was very inspiring. These middle school students looked up to us (Chamber Choir) in the same manner we looked up to world renowned opera singers. Singing for such an impressionable bunch of kids was a great opportunity and persuaded me to become a music educator.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always seek more. It is easy to do the basic work and sing correct notes, but it takes a musician to look past the notes on the page and explore. Don't be afraid to analyze your musical literature during down time. You can even do research on the song and discover the songs origin and meaning. Once you can understand and relate to a song, you will be a more successful performer.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Brown goes beyond teaching students how to sing. He teaches theory that makes us become not just better singers but also better musicians. He goes above and beyond for his students and I doubt there will ever be a better high school choir teacher than him.

    Course highlights:

    I have learned solfege which improves my ability to sing skips. I have learned key signatures which is incredibly helpful in reading music. I have learned to count tricky rhythms such as sixteenth notes. Most importantly I have learned how to put all these aspects together to read musical efficiently and effectively

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Practice, practice, practice. The worst thing a singer can do is not look at their music until you go to class two days later.
