November music begins quietly with peace songs and then seems to rush the holiday season with rehearsals beginning for special music and concerts. Even though I wince at ever earlier store displays of decorations and gifts, I acknowledge that early starts at rehearsal, especially with children, means smoother performances.
Part of performance is getting into formation, posture and attention. Begin rehearsing for concerts by practicing these things with “ordinary” songs. Then, closer to the concert date, teach and practice performance songs.
