Musical Auditions

Auditions for this year's musical, James and the Giant Peach, Jr, will be on January 29th and 30th. A sign up sheet is posted outside the music room.  Attach is an overview of the auditions process along with some suggestions on preparation.  Monologues and Monologues2 offer some options that you can use for your audition.  It is best to read through all of them to select the best one for you and the part you are trying to get.  Don't just pick the first one in the packet! The best type of song to chose is one from a musical instead of a pop song. It is suggested that you sing with accompaniment either using Mr. Bradler on piano or a recording that has no vocals (karaoke style).  Make sure the sheet music/recording are in your vocal range.  Please email me if you have any questions.

5th Grade Homework: Due Friday, Sept. 29th

Here is a copy of the Fretboard and Note Reading Worksheet. Use the Ukulele in the Classroom book (also available on my blog in a separate location) to assist your work.  Pages 6 and 14 should be especially helpful.
