This lab course is to be taken in conjunction with MUSIC 3550 Secondary Vocal Music Methods. Students will have been placed by the instructor into a secondary vocal music classroom in a public school by the first week of class. Students will complete a minimum of 20 hours of observation and teaching over the course of the semester at their placement site. Typically, students visit the classroom for approximately two hours per week. It is anticipated that the hours are completed throughout the entire semester, so students should plan to continue going to their placements for the entire semester even if they complete the 20 hours early in the semester.
