CPA Music Courses 2017/2018

IB Music

Music Vocals (Gr 10, 11, & 12):
This course is designed for those students who love to sing in both solo and choral settings. A good deal of time is spent on team building activities, theatre games, and physical warm-ups in order to free the singing voice and to create a safe environment where students will feel comfortable singing for each other. Folk, classical, jazz, and musical theatre are the primary vocal styles that are explored in this class. However, there will be opportunities to explore pop music as well. The course develops crucial music and singing concepts: stage presence, vocal technique, and music theory.
