Magic Choral Trick #235 Target Pitches

Just emailed out some Target Pitches for a couple of my choruses.

These are for use with their Korg tuners – that wonderful piece of Biofeedback machinery that helps chorus members to work on pitch/tuning in the privacy of their own homes – without necessarily being able to read music.

Here’s the link about Korg Tuners:

And here’s an example of what I just sent out. This one is for the Lead section in my Men’s Barbershop chorus – for the song “From the First Hello, to the Last Good-bye”:

Target Pitches Lead – From the First Hello

C       A                 A                    A
Our song was a song of to-mor-row

D         G                                    C
Our Hearts were as high as the sky

A       F                                       C              G
But songs are for-got-ten and skies of-ten grey

F                   F                A           G
Ne-ver-the-less there is this I can say

F          G    A         D          Bflat      E
From the first hel-lo to the last good-bye

I've been waving my arms in front of choirs now for more than 35 years - and these are descriptions of all the very best things I've learned. I direct a Women's Competitive Barbershop Chorus, a Men's Competitive Barbershop Chorus, a Med School choir, and for a few weeks each year - Big Choir (about 100 voices) - which performs at an annual fundraising concert. Hope at least some of these Choral Magic Tricks will be useful to you - and thanks for reading. Janet
