This course develops students practical skills in leading and accompanying solo, small and large group performances. Students will accompany their own singing and the singing and performing of others using the piano, guitar, hand percussion, and an original computer arrangement. Original arrangement analysis and production projects will be integrated throughout the semester including realizing lead sheets from sheet music and recordings, performing basic comping, rhythmic, and strumming patterns, and arranging, sequencing and producing accompaniments via computer software. This course culminates in a school or community service-learning performance leading and accompanying youth in singing.
