PLEASE BE SURE YOU ARE NOT SHOUTING!!!!!
Remember, grades K-2 only sing the beginning, the King of Kings/Lord of Lord section, and the last line.
Here are some fun vocal warmups before you begin:
also, we will NOT be singing measures 17- 31. (That is, not counting the cover page art, do NOT study from middle of page 4 through all of page 5. Pick up at the top of page 6 (right hand side)
OR, if you are looking at the clock, we do NOT sing from 1:32 to 2:08 )
In addition, be aware that the publishers cut the song right before the very ending…. They left out the final “king of kings, and Lord of lords, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah….. Hal le- Lu jah! “. So you’ll just have to listen inside your brain for that big finish!!!!
remember, this is a marathon, so train well (scroll down my page for some good warmups!) and in good faith that the final result will be worth all the hard work!
WE CAN DO THIS, if we all work together!!!
