SACRED MUSIC INSTITUTE OF AMERICA

FREE ONLINE EVENT for PARISH ORGANISTS

 

Organ Pieces to Practice at Home and Online Learning with Organist David Baskeyfield - a Survey of Manuals-Only Repertoire -- FREE CLASS ONLINE SATURDAY, APRIL 25TH AT 1PM

Due to the Coronavirus situation, many of us are currently shut out of our churches and, more widely, being encouraged to stay home. Organist David Baskeyfield will present a brief survey of manuals-only organ repertoire that can be practiced on the piano or any keyboard. During this time of restricted social interaction, we would particularly like to emphasize that online lessons are continuing through the Sacred Music Institute. Since online lessons may be a new style of learning for many people, during the presentation David will teach some very short "demo" lessons with currently enrolled students to give an idea of what online teaching looks like. The Institute and this presentation are perfect for all levels of skill and experience whether you'd like to expand your repertoire and technique or gain some new perspectives on service playing.

 

This event is free and open to all; however, access to this free event is limited, so attendees must register in advance in order for us to send you the link to join this online presentation.

Technique + Technology:  A Presentation for Vocalists and Choral Directors Outlining User-friendly Applications of Modern Technology to Facilitate Effective Practice and Efficient Rehearsals -- FREE CLASS ONLINE WEDNESDAY, APRIL 15TH AT 7PM

Join Rachel Parfenchuk for a presentation focused on the conveniences of our modern world and how they can assist vocalists and choral directors alike. With a brief overview of the vocal mechanism and qualities of a healthy sound, Rachel will detail ways technology can be implemented to help students assess their own technique without a teacher physically present. Voice students of the institute will demonstrate their use of these simple ways to get the most out of a practice session. The presentation will also include ways choral directors can use technology to maximize rehearsal time and provide resources for their singers. During this time of restricted social interaction, we would particularly like to emphasize that online lessons are continuing through the Sacred Music Institute.
