Warming Up With Rounds
by Catherine DeLanoy
Teaching Music Literacy Using Rounds In The Choral Rehearsal
By using rounds as warm-ups, you can teach vocal technique, music theory, application, appreciation, and history, as well as increase your singers' understanding of scales, intervals, modes, dynamics, and terminology. Each round in this collection has instructions on the musical focus and implementation of each song and several were intentionally included for adolescent boys with a limited range. This resource includes familiar and rare, easy and challenging, and serious and fun rounds that teachers and students will enjoy using to create beautiful and harmonious music together!
Songs include: A Ram Sam Sam; Ah, Poor Bird; All Things Shall Perish; Alleluia, Amen; Are You Sleeping?; Be Welcome; Beethoven's Canon; By The Waters Of Babylon; Christmas Is Coming; Coffee; Come Follow; Dona Nobis Pacem; Flowers Are Dying; Hashivenu; Hey, Ho, Nobody At Home; Hine Ma Tov; I Love The Mountains; Jubilate Deo; Let Us Sing Together; Mah, Keyla, Blip; Mozart's Canon; Now We Are Met; Oh, How Lovely Is The Evening; One Bottle Of Pop; Scotland's Burning; Shalom Chaverim; Sing And Rejoice; Sing A Round; Sing We Merrily; Songs We Love; Tallis' Cannon; The Hunter; We Merry Minstrels; White Coral Bells; Why Shouldn't My Goose; and With Laughter And Singing.
