Today our regular assistant teacher ms Parchment was absent from choir rehearsals and we were experiencing rather a few too many behavioural issues. The children seemed really drained today and struggled to stay focused.
Learning the soprano part for oh happy day took a lot longer than expected especially as they wanted to repeat the solo tune instead of the echo choir part.
With things progressively getting worse and time moving swiftly on, we didn’t get through a lot at all. I allowed the choir to sit on the stage in hopes that they would co-operate better whilst resting, however we got to the chorus and they could not sing the whole chorus back to me. There was a lot of talking and children wanting to either sing silly notes or not sing at all. Not a very good session today. :((
