Week of October 16 - 20, 2017



Mr. Adams' DRAMA CLASSES 
(First, Second and Fourth Period)

Please check Mr. Adams' blog for the coaching schedule. I will try to make sure we have had a chance to meet to record the melody/vocal line and review lyrics before you present in front of the class. If you have already been coached, make sure you review all of your notes and "take aways". You will need to show improvement during your final presentation.

CLASS OF 2018

We continue our coaching and planning for the next stages of your college audition/application process. Deadlines are quickly approaching.

ComPAny 2018

I will collect your repertoire forms and devising a song coaching schedule for our NYC master classes in December/January. We have to get started, so we can rotate EVERYONE through before then. I have forms from the following:

Williams, Shirley, Flowers, Hershel, Noble, Swain, Vogel, Simmons, Faser, Bailey, Butts, Captino, Farmer, Kessloff, Kirbas, McPherson, Newton, Payne, Primous, Reese, Rudd, Talley

The REST of you are LATE with your submission. The longer you wait, the less time you are allotted for coaching sessions.
Please get your forms to me.

CCCEPA CLASS of 2018 

We continue to narrow EVEN MORE, your repertoire choices for your college audition prescreens. Throughout the mornings and in some classes, I will meet individually with you to help with your preparation. If you presented on Thursday or Friday, of last week, please make notes, so we can 'freeze' your repertoire lists for pre-screen week. With a shortened week, you must work fast to have all of your pieces ready to be filmed.

HERE WE GO!!!!!


CCCEPA CLASS of 2018 

We narrow EVEN MORE, your repertoire choices for your college audition prescreens. Throughout the mornings and in some classes, I will meet individually with you to help with your preparation. Don't forget on Thursday and Friday, we present your audition song cuts for the faculty. Think of it as a final "this song works well/doesn't work so well". After you present, we'll know which songs to polish for your audition prescreen. DON'T FORGET TO BREATHE. YOU GOT THIS!
