TMT13: Sightsinging for Stubborn Seniors

I am sure you, like me, have that one student who doesn’t think they can sight sing. They dig their heels in and just plainly refuse to give it a go. I have spent the last two years developing a weekly strategy that will help those students. My senior students come into class not having had a history of singing. They might do a little in their elective classes but generally there will be one or two who are “instrumentalists that don’t sing!”.  You know the type.

Well, I have a system that is painless, easy and makes perfect sense when taken from the perspective of the instrumental student. This weeks podcast introduces you to the first stage and explains how I go about teaching sight singing to stubborn seniors. In the coming weeks, I will be releasing other elements of this strategy to help you and your students see success in this area.

Klerrisa Custom Music creates innovative resources that engage my students

Kym Reithmuller

I have used Klerrisa’s resources for many years and have always found them to be highly beneficial as they work! You can open them up and start teaching knowing that they have been thoroughly prepared and tested in the classroom. Students respond well to them as they experience success and fun whilst learning. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

I highly recommend the resource material on the Klerrisa Custom Music website. Both Kerri and Lisa are excellent educationalists, presenters and musically talented professionals.
