Lesson 1 Level TWO S-Cubed Middle School Sight Singing Program for Beginners!

Lesson 1 Level TWO S-Cubed Middle School Sight Singing Program for Beginners!

Octaves, Balance, Blend and Review This product is only intended for teachers and students who have completed the Original S-Cubed Series for Beginners.   This method is intended only for SAB or Three-part choirs that include the boy's changing or changed voice all of whom have completed S-Cubed Original Series before their voices changed.   It is not intended for people who have completed other sight singing programs and who believe they are ready for S-Cubed Level 2.  Do not buy this lesson in that situation. It will be a waste of your money. This is best used when you've completed the first series. In this lesson, we review items from the previous S-Cubed program.  We learn the "Cup Up' Game to generate an atmosphere of teamwork. It will help them as they face tougher work in sight singing.  We "test" ourselves in the mixed choir sight singing arena.  We learn about tuning "octaves".  With S-Cubed Level 2, we will build skills that help them begin to ask questions as they get ready to move to high school.  We will begin to address the theoretical items that they have questions about.  If you are looking for a Freshman Theory class, S-Cubed Level 2 isn’t it. S-Cubed is designed to appeal to real middle school students who walk into your classroom with little or no experience and to the teachers who teach them. Please start with the original series which is located in my store. One step at a time...the S-Cubed way.  Preparing them to be curious, life-long, literate singers as they are ready.   Stay connected with Mr D:

Keep your eyes on me!  Ideas to help your middle school choral students watch you better!

Keep your eyes on me! Ideas to help your middle school choral students watch you better!

If we had a dollar for every time we asked our upper elementary and middle school choir students to watch us while they sing, we'd all be rich! The goal in this offering is to give you four quick, memorable, fun activities to help your young singers learn the important concept of how important it is to watch the conductor while they sing! You can use the activities all at once or break them up over time. Each activity will take under 5 minutes to teach. You are likely to get a lot of mileage out of these exercises, and the ideas are likely to make you think of even more ways to help your students learn the importance of watching the conductor! In this offering, you will get: *15 page power point with guidelines and rules for the four activities. *YouTube links of Mr D talking to the camera directly to you to describe in detail how he uses the activities with his students. *YouTube links of Mr D actually doing the activities with his beginning choir students. Get outrageous with "Keep your Eyes on Me!" ...and maybe...just maybe... you won't have to say "Watch me" again! Mr D is the creator of the S-Cubed Middle School Sight Singing Program for Beginners.

Lesson 6  Chaos!  S-Cubed Successful Sight Singing for Middle School Beginners

Lesson 6 Chaos! S-Cubed Successful Sight Singing for Middle School Beginners

Product Description: S-Cubed: How to Teach Sight Singing to Your Middle School Beginners! This program is cumulative in nature. You should begin with Lesson 1 The Game. It's in my store. In this Power Point Presentation, you will learn about another important layer in the S-Cubed process that will help your singers become stronger and more independent Sight Singers. In Lesson 6, you will be guided through how to use what Mr D calls "Chaos" during your Sight Singing lessons. You will learn what Chaos is (as if middle school teachers don't already know!) and how to apply it to your daily sight singing ritual. The new layer will help your students work at their own pace and gradually improve as the process continues. In this lesson, you will also receive 4 more Sight Singing examples, numerous teaching tips (video tips as well as written tips) on how to use Chaos effectively, and several YouTube clips of Mr D teaching the process to his own beginners (2013-2014 school year) so you can see the process in action. You will also continue using the teaching techniques that we learned about in Lessons 1-5. However, this lesson is also good as a "stand alone" lesson for teachers who have a good method in place for teaching pitch and rhythm, but who are looking for another way to help improve some of the weaker Sight Singers. The independent component of Chaos is the part that helps all levels to improve and work at their own pace. Most importantly, using Chaos in your lessons helps you rely less and less on that soprano who has been taking private lessons for 8 of her 11 years on the planet! ....and we want all of them to become better Sight Singers anyway...that is a big part of the S-Cubed philosophy! Try CHAOS today in your classroom and watch how quickly the structured use of it will help your singers become great readers!

Lesson 15  The Secret Code REVEALED!  S-Cubed Middle School Sight Singing Program for Beginners

Lesson 15 The Secret Code REVEALED! S-Cubed Middle School Sight Singing Program for Beginners

Production Description: This program is cumulative in nature. For best results, start with Lesson 1-The Game! Giving our young, inexperienced Sight Singers a Circle of Fifths and saying “GO” is a sure fire way to make their eyes glaze over and to lose your audience. They are a tough crowd. So, we present this all-important lesson about key signatures in the typical S-Cubed fashion by presenting it as a mystery code that they have to know in order to unlock the information. The preparation is done, and now our students are ready to have the Secret Code REVEALED! I tell my students that it’s time to start on our path toward reading music the “Grown up” way. The goal is to get them to use the key signature to determine what the first pitch of the song is, and that is exactly what they learn in this 4-day, 10-15 minutes per day lesson set that is a part of the S-Cubed Sight Singing System for Upper Elementary and Middle School Teachers and their Students. This lesson is a direct extension of Lesson 14 during which we lay the groundwork for this final step. Also, in this four-day lesson, you will get 4 Written/Oral Warm ups, 4 Sight Singing Examples, and 4 Group Rhythm Exercises that emphasize the differences in the appearances of the dotted-quarter/dotted half note. You will also continue refining their ears as you use the Chromatic Scale in the game Forbidden Pattern, and you will continue to prepare skips. As always, you will get short video links of Mr D giving you some teaching tips to help guide you through each day’s lessons, as well as actual teaching examples of Mr D delivering the material to his own beginners. We are well on our way to successfully reading 2-part Sight Singing exercises that include syncopated rhythms! Become a part of the S-Cubed System today. One step at a time…the S-Cubed way!

Lesson 25 Product Description TWO-PARTS! This program is cumulative. For best results, start with Lesson 1: After preparing our beginning sight singers for months and arming them carefully and methodically with numerous tools to fill their Sight-Singing tool box through successful unison sight singing work, we are ready to tackle Two-Part Sight Singing! All of our careful preparation will pay off in this very exciting moment on the S-Cubed journey. The best part of it all is that the materials and ideas they are learning now in this Two-part sight singing lesson will help you and your students enormously in your performance repertoire too! In this 27 slide Power Point, 3-day lesson, we focus on connecting the dots. In past lessons, we taught our students important skills through two-part rhythm exercises. Now, we will take the same concepts from the rhythm work of the previous S-Cubed lessons and transfer them to PITCHES in the Two-Part Sight Singing examples. As always, the examples in the lessons are custom built to teach specific concepts like recognizing unison pitches and unison rhythms. The examples are specifically designed to work for the beginning middle school student. In other words, the problem areas are written to be obvious and clear so we get the answers we are looking for as we help make them literate, successful Two-Part Sight Singers. We work in this lesson to arm them with yet even more tools for their toolbox of successful sight singing, except this time, all of the tools are aimed specifically at how to survive and thrive in Two-Parts. We learn about “Recovery Strategies” and much more. In this lesson, you will receive: *3 sight singing examples *3 rhythm examples *3 written/oral warm ups *Written guidance on tuning ideas to improve intonation *As always, you get links to customized video teaching tips for each daily lesson *And you get videos of Mr D actually teaching the specific lesson to his beginners as he prepares them for their adjudicated festival event that is about 2 weeks away at the time these videos were created. At that event, they will have to successfully sight sing in Two-Parts at the level you are seeing in the examples included in this lesson! The procedures in this Lesson are similar to all of the previous S-Cubed lessons: Written/Oral Warm Up/Two-Part Group Rhythm Exercise/Optional Forbidden Pattern and Follow the Hand/Sight Singing Tonality prep/Sight Singing Example.

Lesson 16 SKIPS!  S-Cubed Middle School Sight Singing Program for Beginners!

Lesson 16 SKIPS! S-Cubed Middle School Sight Singing Program for Beginners!

Product Description: This program is cumulative in nature. For best results, start with Lesson 1-The Game! By Lesson 16 of S-Cubed!, we are approaching the half-way point on our Sight Singing journey with our Middle School Children! The students have mastered stepwise sight singing examples with some difficult rhythms. They have the tools in their toolbox to deal with many challenges, and they can figure out many things on their own.….and all of it is done acapella…with success! We have been preparing skips for weeks. Now, it is time for us to help our beginning students learn to see, interpret and successfully sign and sing skips on the actual staff. In this 4 day Power Point lesson, you will get 3 Sight Singing examples, 2 Rhythm exercises, guidance on the game Forbidden Pattern using Chromatics, three written/oral warm up exercises, handouts to supplement the learning of skips vs. steps, and, as always, you will get links to video teaching tips from Mr D for each daily lesson.

It’s all about success and fun instead of dread, silence and moans. Developed by a real middle school teacher who is using the method successfully in his own classroom, S-Cubed! is not a Sight Singing book. There are tons of those on the market. It’s an all-inclusive 10/15 minutes-per-day system. It is tried and true and doesn’t skip any steps in the teaching process. The method meets the students where they are and gives them only the information they need to be successful and to stay excited about learning to sight sing.

Lesson 19 AWAKENING!  S-Cubed Middle School Sight Singing Program for Beginners!

Lesson 19 AWAKENING! S-Cubed Middle School Sight Singing Program for Beginners!

Lesson 19 Product Description: This program is cumulative in nature. For best results, start with Lesson 1-The Game! AWAKENING! “When the student is ready, the teacher appears.” Well, it’s time to help our students take a big leap toward being ready to receive! It’s called AWAKENING because the primary objective on the first day of this 3 day lesson sequence is to awaken our students to where they are headed for the next 9 lessons! S-Cubed is all about daily Success…except on this one day! I use my S-Cubed program to prepare my own students for their adjudicated festival in Georgia. The standard for Middle School Sight Singing is extremely high in this state. At this critical juncture in the S-Cubed training system, I want to take a moment to let my students experience the high level of skill that will be required of them at the event. I want them to feel and experience what it would be like for them to walk into the Sight Singing room unequipped with all of the tools they need to do well under the pressure they are likely to feel at the event. So, on Day 1 of Lesson 19, we re-create the exact experience of the day of adjudication. On Day 1 of AWAKENING, for the first time, we deliberately set them up to fail by over-challenging them, and we use the failure to help them (and us) wake up to the work that still lies ahead in the process. We follow it up with a discussion. Because students really want to be successful, this experience helps them buy in to the final phase of the learning process of S-Cubed and trust that you know where you are headed and that you have the skills to get them there. Over the final 9 week period of S-Cubed, they will listen better and work harder as they continue to learn new skills and tools to help them become effective sight singers. In Days 2 and 3 of Lesson 19, you will go back to the preparation process, and you will start moving in the direction of sharing new tools like drilling, working to improve balance and increase confidence in sections by using 2-part rhythm exercises. You will continue to develop their ability to locate pitch as you increase the difficulty of the “Follow the Hand” exercise. You will also begin preparation for the “RE, FA, LA” tool through the game Forbidden Pattern. You’ll get 3 sight singing examples, 2 rhythm exercises, 3 written/oral warm ups, guidance on how to use Forbidden Pattern to introduce a new tool, direct links to video teaching tips for each days lessons as well as actual teaching examples of me doing the work with real students in a real classroom.

It’s called MILESTONE because it is a BIG one in the process of teaching our young upper elementary and middle school beginners how to sight sing.

The lessons follow the normal daily lesson procedure outlined in the three freebies in the S-Cubed program. Please check those out!

S-Cubed Level 2 Lesson 3 Product Description This product is only intended for teachers and students who have completed the Original S-Cubed Series for Beginners, and who have also completed Lesson 1 and Lesson 2 in Level 2 which are available in my store. This method is intended only for SAB or Three-part choirs that include the boy's changing or changed voice all of whom have completed S-Cubed Original Series before their voices changed.   It is not intended for people who have completed other sight singing programs and who believe they are ready for S-Cubed Level 2.  Do not buy this lesson in that situation. It will be a waste of your money. In this lesson, we begin our transition toward the learning more about the theory of music while we continue working on their ears to help them hear and see true/perfect unisons and octave unisons. Using kinesthetic, aural and visual techniques to help our students begin to connect the dots from solfege to reading the letter names, we are easing them into the understanding that is required to excel as true musicians. We continue to use rhythm exercises to further develop their balance and blend in the mixed choir setting. There are four 10-15 minute sight singing lessons included in this purchase.
