edutopia
 
UIL Header The structure for choral instruction will be based on the following modules: Music Theory, Vocal Training, sight-reading, Music History, and Performance. Each of these modules will run simultaneously throughout the school year. The program for choral literature is classically based. The goals for the choral curriculum are strictly based on the Title 28 Education Part LI. Bulletin 1963—Louisiana Arts Content Standards.  
The overall goal for choral students is performance. In order to develop vocal skill fully, students are expected to perform in each routine rehearse and at each scheduled performance. In addition to choral performances, each student will perform as soloists in order to develop as an independent vocalist.  
Mid-Term and Final Examinations are cumulative. The first semester written exam will be based on music theory; and the performance exam for semester one will be cumulative of the vocal music repertoire performed during semester one, including seasonal music. The second semester written exam will be based on music history; and the performance exam for semester two will be cumulative of the vocal music repertoire performed during semester two, including festival music and Lutgen Vocalises.
