Greetings, Prep 3 Families,

Thank you for another great week of rehearsing in Prep 3 – especially during this week of holidays, I was toiched to have so many dedicated singers attend rehearsal! Now is the time to really practice at home and start rehearsing finite details such as dynamics, diction and expressive elements, both in class, and at home. Practice all your songs whilst standing in front of the mirror, checking for a tall, alert, yet comfortable posture. practice all the motions for the songs that have choreography. Thank you for keeping up the hard work!
