An accompanist will be provided, so bring sheet music in the correct key that is clearly marked. Sheet music should be placed in a binder with non-glare sheet protectors. Telly will engage ALL students in the entire class. Those who are interested in singing will put their name in a hat at the top of the class. Telly will pull names from the hat and work with as many singers as possible in the allotted time, utilising those students and their selections to engage the entire class in a close examination and discussion of vocal and story-telling techniques to find deeper connection to their pieces.
