Warming Up with Rounds
Teaching Music Literacy Using Rounds in the Choral Rehearsal
By Catherine Delanoy
48 pages
Grades 6 - 9

Collection of choral rounds that are ideal teaching tools for a choral curriculum that will satisfy state and national music standards and help bring choir back into the daily classroom schedule. By using rounds as warm-ups, you can teach vocal technique, music theory, application, appreciation, and history, as well as increase your singers' understanding of scales, intervals, modes, dynamics, and terminology.

Organized in beginner, intermeditate and advanced sections, each round has instructions on the musical focus and implementation of each song. Additional comments give insight into the historical background or practical tips for a successful performance. Several rounds are intentionally included for adolescent boys with limited range.

Warming Up with Rounds includes 36 rounds -  familiar and rare, easy and challenging, as well as serious and fun.
