Vocals Performance – Stage 1, Foundation 3


At Stage 1 Foundation 3 in Vocals Performance Learners will be able to perform pieces to a backing track that are longer than Foundation 2.  Styles will be further developed to develop fundamental techniques that will require them to develop their range and be able to sing wider intervals and develop a consistent tone and intonation. They will also begin to show simple development of material through ad lib of short phrases. Rhythms will be further developed to include simple syncopation. They will continue to demonstrate theoretical knowledge of the performance pieces by showing and describing musical terms and directions and where and how they are used. This will be extended to include instrumental demonstrations of simple techniques. In addition, they will also continue to show stage presence through the addition of appropriate body language and awareness of an audience in their performance, through the ability of maintaining focus and confidence.
