CofBC Pop 1 graded play-through #2

This was the second opportunity for my CofBC Pop 1s to perform solo to the class. Building on the lessons learned from their previous play-through, the students chose a song to perform in front of what will be one of their kindest audiences. After each performance the class were invited to give constructive criticism and advice to performers.

As part of the students development, both musically and professionally, they were asked to consider the following:

– Fluency
– RH/LH technique
– Rhythm
– Sync (timing)
– Confidence and presentation
– Stylistic awareness

Here are the performances:

Joe Downes: Decadence Dance – Extreme

Zack Mapp: Theme from Castlevania

Gus Hackett: Classical piece

Other performances:

Well done to all who performed this week!
