DENTON — Amy Shepler, Supervisor of Instruction for Caroline County Public Schools, proposed the idea of incorporating advanced vocal performance classes in all county schools, at the Board of Education meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 4.
McCormick was awarded Teacher of the Year in the 2007-2008 school year and was appointed to her current position in July 2019.
“The High School Advance Vocal Performance courses is designed for students with previous choral singing experience,” McCormick said. “It will provide an opportunity for vocal music students to refine and advance their musical, singing, and performance skills.”
“Emphasis on the class will focus on proper breathing and vocal techniques, sight reading and solfege, performance preparation and etiquette, and solo and group performance techniques,” she said. “Through the collaborative environment of the choral setting, students will demonstrate teamwork and display leadership skills.”
The proposal was approved by all six board members and will go into effect starting in the fall of 2020.
