Choir is definitely "driving the bus" this year. While theory will take over a lot of the load as the WSO iPad project develops, and band is making great progress, it is choir that I have to devote most of my time to.
There are 36 students in there. I am having to relearn my assessment strategies for large groups.
We got approval to add an accompanist. This is huge. Not only can I choose different repertoire, but I can move soooo much faster. Having two adults in the room will change the dynamic dramatically.
Having someone to talk to about the program and choices we make will be awesome.
Interesting fact: I googled all the applicants. Having your work online and easy to find is essential.
