One-Minute Theory for the Choral Classroom by Ronald Slabbinck & Holly Shaw-Slabbinck teaches the essentials of music theory without cutting into valuable rehearsal time. The curriculum, structured as a collection of one-minute lessons, is designed to target issues of music literacy specific to the choral classroom. The series provides simple and convenient assessment through the use of the Test Bank. The Student Edition provides self-explanatory lessons, but can also be used as a great jumping-off point for teaching theory in the context of performance.
One-Minute Sight Singing teaches and reinforces the essentials of solfege-based sight singing without cutting into valuable rehearsal time. The curriculum, structured as a collection of one-minute lessons, targets students of all ages who are new to sight singing. It also serves as an ideal component to the regular choral warm-up routine for singers of all experience levels. Singers who are new to music reading and theory will appreciate the helpful reminders interspersed before new concepts are introduced in the music. The careful progression of lessons ensures that singers will gain a solid mastery of sight singing, movable "Do" solfege, and Curwen hand symbols.
