Information about "You're Instrumental" - Disney Performing Arts Workshop Sight-read, prepare and record a polished performance of special Disney music selections in a studio environment like a professional musician. Students learn how to get the most out of rehearsals and discover how to execute a pitch-perfect performance as they hone their sight-reading skills under the guidance of an experienced Disney teaching artist.
Your group will examine the skills, attitudes and priorities essential to musical excellence. This 2-1/2-hour workshop culminates in a very special finale—a recording of your ensemble performing Disney music, accompanied by footage from a classic Disney animated film. Performers work toward musical and technical proficiency in a recording studio environment as they:
Sight-read arrangements of Disney music ranging from Grade 1.5 to Grade 4
Incorporate accuracy and expressiveness to maximize rehearsal productivity
Emphasize intonation, balance and tone quality while following the conductor's interpretation
Discuss the requirements of a studio recording environment and what is expected of performers
Experience what life is like for a professional studio musician
Chairs, stands, a piano, amps and all large percussion instruments are provided. Music is scored for concert bands, string orchestras, full orchestras or combined concert band/string orchestras. Your Disney teaching artist will select music appropriate for your group's grade level in order to achieve musical success within a short rehearsal period.
