april concert repertoire

Afka Hooyo (Mother Tongue):

  • Memorization on this will take time! Remember our quote from this week:

“Your level of SUCCESS is only predetermined by your level of EFFORT.”
  • Schedule time to put in the work to make this great. It’s such a cool piece and you are making good progress with it. Keep working!

  • Memorize for NEXT REHEARSAL (4/3).

  • Practice to be completely confident in your text for the entire piece.

    • Speak the text slowly in rhythm and then add the pitch in tempo.

  • Listen here.

I Believe:

  • Thank you Faith for auditioning! If anyone else wants to audition for this solo, please just shoot me an e-mail to let me know and we can do that at next rehearsal.

    • Opening solo will be a treble voice.

    • Middle solo can be treble or changed voice.

  • Work to clean your memorization of this. It was very well sung last rehearsal and is really starting to have nice phrasing with beautiful rise and fall. Let’s continue to improve on this.

    • Work on the rise and fall of each phrase throughout this piece so it doesn’t sound all the same. Work for its musicality.

  • Listen here.


  • Practice with 100% rhythmic accuracy. Work to place the rhythms in the correct part of the beat.

  • Memorize for NEXT REHEARSAL (4/3).

  • Listen here.

Stand In the Light:

  • This was really nice last rehearsal!

  • Continue to clean your memorization and continue to review the rhythms of the verses.

  • Focus on the intensity of your tone as well as cleanness of each syllable’s rhythm when you practice.
