Students will be asked to sing together in small groups to determine their singing grade. Every student is expected to participate in all class activities to the best of their abilities. Participation means being prepared for class, engaging in all class activities, singing with the group, presenting choreography, and performing your very best. Special projects may also be assigned to further student learning. These projects will be treated as a test grade and constitute 30 % of the student’s grade.
