Warming Up with Rounds by : Catherine DeLanoy
Choral rounds have been used for recreational singing for hundreds of years and are effective tools for your students to understand harmony; expand their vocal ranges; and experience a choral sound that is easily accessible to them. Music educators can satisfy state and national music standards with a carefully crafted choral curriculum; bringing 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.
Each round in this collection has instructions on the musical focus and implementation of the song. Additional comments give insight into the historical background or practical tips for a successful performance. Several rounds were intentionally included for adolescent boys with a limited range.
Warming Up with Rounds includes both familiar and rare rounds that are easy and challenging; as well as serious and fun. Music teachers and their students will enjoy discovering the secrets that choral rounds offer and ultimately feel a great sense of accomplishment when they make beautiful; harmonious music together.
