Joyful Noisemakers


“ITTY BITTY NOISEMAKERS”
Toddler music and movement program

One and Two Year Olds
Instructor: Stephanie Holland                           

This Mommy and Me class for our youngest students encourages joy in music.  They go from observing their parent's participation, to participating themselves as the year progresses and they develop.  Singing, dancing, finger plays, parachutes, tunnels, are some of the tools we use to encourage social and musical development in these precious students. These early years are full of developmental opportunities, and this class will contribute greatly towards your child's development.

 

JOYFUL“NOISEMAKERS”
Preschool music program

 

Three, Four, and Five Year Olds
Instructor: Glenda Garwood

“Joyful Noisemakers” is our music and movement preschool program for our youngest joyful music makers – age 4-5 years old. We use a comprehensive approach to musical learning that develops singing, movement, and listening skills simultaneously with an introduction to musical styles and concepts. The children will have a positive “hands on” experience using a variety of rhythm instruments and “Boom Whackers” as they create their own music. Our goal is to nurture the children’s love for the gift of music and to equip them with beginning music theory skills that will enable them to explore their own unique musical gifts with confidence!




Concert & Symphonic Bands


Band instruction is available on four levels, Beginner through Elite. We begin with students who don’t know how to read music or assemble their instrument and help them progress to playing more and more complex and difficult music. All music types are explored: swing, modern, traditional, hymns, praise, marches, sacred, and so much more. We offer opportunities for students to perform, as well as leadership opportunities for older students who assist the directors.

 

Beginner Band

Instructor: Amy Gravitte 1:00 – 1:55

Beginner Band is for students with little or no musical training on an instrument. To participate in Beginner Band, students must be at least 9 years old and attend an Instrument Fitting. The Instrument Fitting is a time for your child to see the different instruments under the direction of trained personnel. With the information gathered at this time, we are better able to determine what instrument your child would enjoy playing based on their aptitudes, abilities, and desire. See our Important Dates page for more information on instrument fittings.

If you already have an instrument, please bring it to the fitting. List also your first, second and third choice of instrument. Every effort is made to ensure your child’s success and enjoyment.

Chorus Classes

 

Elementary Children’s, Middle School, and High School Chorus

Instructor: Chris Owenby

11:00-11:55  High School Chorus
12:00-12:55  Middle School Chorus
1:00-1:55  Elementary Children’s Chorus


Our non-auditioned Elementary, Middle School and High School Choruses are great groups to expand musical skills. During the year, students learn to read music from the printed page, acquire music theory skills, and prepare for concerts. The chorus works on a varied and exciting repertoire each semester, drawing from a broad variety of musical streams including gospel, traditional folk, spirituals, contemporary, jazz, Renaissance, and classical. Past concerts have included Mozart’s Alleluia Canon, Gospel favorites like Down to the River to Pray, Gershwin medleys, and various Broadway and sacred pieces.

We endeavor to teach the musical and vocal skills necessary to produce a lifelong enjoyment of the creative arts. Students learn the fundamentals of proper choral technique (posture, breathing, diction, dynamic control, pitch control, rhythm, etc.) so that they can sing properly. We desire to create a learning environment that is enjoyable and encouraging for all participants. We want to provide an opportunity for students and parents to develop lasting relationships with others within Joyful Noise.


Requirements: Your voice and a positive attitude!

 

Orchestra Classes


Orchestra instruction is available on five levels:

At each level, different music types and styles are explored while skills and technique are being
sharpened. We offer opportunities for students to perform, as well as leadership opportunities
for older students. Unlike public school orchestral students, who have the opportunity to practice
together daily or several times per week, our students are highly motivated and spend a great
deal of time at home practicing, as well as performing for various concerts, home school events, and
in the community.

BEGINNER ORCHESTRA 1

Instructor: Andrea Mattick 12:00-1:00 p.m.

Beginner Orchestra 1 is for the younger student (age 6-8) with little or no musical training on their
instrument, or those trained in Suzuki, but not yet reading music fluently. This class is specifically

ADVANCED ORCHESTRAS

Instructor: Dick Shackelford

Joyful Noise “Advanced Abilities” Orchestras provide for two ensembles in the first semester. Each of these are the HIGHEST offerings in string music. These classes offered are ADVANCED Orchestra and CHAMBER Orchestra. At each level, students are exposed to a wide variety of musical types & styles with a focus on training to produce ensemble music which produces an improvement of instrumental technique and improved reading of music. Unlike public school orchestral students who generally rehearse for at least an hour daily, Joyful Noise Orchestra students gather together one hour per week being highly motivated, with a commitment to practice adequately at home, fulfilling their obligations not only to themselves, but to the group as a whole – the Orchestra! All students shall commit to punctuality AND regular attendance. Students enrolled must keep their commitments with no other functions allowed to conflict with this class time; it is unfair to the other students in the class, and the entire class performance suffers.

Often, opportunities may occur throughout the year which allow the ensembles to perform in various concert venues, home-school events, around the community, and have in the past appeared at the Georgia state capitol.

Furthermore, each student within the Advanced & Chamber curriculum shall be required to commit to attend "Stringsational", a truly exceptional clinic experience for strings, held on a Saturday in February. This event is conducted by an invited Orchestra Director/String Teacher who is extremely skilled in the field of stringed instruments and brings their experience to us in producing a fantastic orchestra experience, followed by an afternoon concert, AND lunch is provided!!!


Some COMMON requirements for ALL classes:

 

  1. A personal Instrument in good playing condition
  2. A substantial, strong music stand
  3. an electronic tuner/metronome
  4. a sharp pencil. (or two)
  5. A commitment to punctuality
  6. A commitment to practice a minimum of 225 minutes per week
  7. A Black Orchestra Folio
  8. Concert attire as outlined by Joyful Noise

 

Details of the Requirements:

1. This personal stringed instrument must have adequate strings, no older than one year old (at most) and expected to be tuned by the student because the director will not have the time to be responsible for the tuning of the student’s instrument. Since tuning one’s instrument is required at home to practice, so it is at class! The hair of the bow should be ample, able to take rosin and produce a good tone.

2. Please, no rickety, wobbly stands. Students cannot afford to be distracted by music that is not stable.

3. A small electronic tuner will be to allow the student to tune their own instrument prior to the beginning of the class. If a student has access to a smart-phone, there are numerous apps available that can be used for initial tuning, but not allowed into the classroom environment. One such smartphone app is “TE Tuner”.

4. A pencil will be needed as music is always marked as offered by the director, or section leader, to enhance the learning experience - fingerings to help the student play a passage, bowings to provide a unity in the playing of the music.

5. Punctuality is essential for a class that meets only one hour per week. Both the tardy student AND the rest of the orchestra suffer at this behavior.

6. Because weekly meetings are “rehearsals”, practice is an activity that must be exercised by the individual student on personal time for when the class is gather each student is to contribute their playing excellence to the group.

7. A Black Band/Orchestra Music Folio shall be required. Because the rehearsal process requires numerous markings made to the music, adding fingerings, bowings, technical markings, etc., a Black Band/Orchestra Music Folio will be required. This is a change from the 3-ring binder with slip-sleeves, which has proven to be impossible to mark parts in a timely manner! It is a recommendation to acquire the same folio for concert uniformity.

See https://www.musicfolder.com/music-folders/band-and-orchestra-folder Available as Factory Seconds (B-Folder ) for less than $10 and available through Joyful Noise

8. Concert Attire: See link: http://www.joyfulnoiseband.com/index.php/member-information/concert-attire

Add black bow tie, and please, no visible suspenders. Those reserved for under a jacket.

SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

(Second Semester)

For the Joyful Noise Orchestra’s second semester highly qualified wind, brass and percussion students are invited to join the Chamber Orchestra to provide for the creation of the SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA! The creation of this unique ensemble depends on a serious commitment of everyone involved. The process of producing a successful Symphony is one of learning all about oneself, his/her instrument AND fellow musicians, turning a large group involving ALL the instrumentalists into ONE united voice, THE SYMPHONY!

The Joyful Noise Symphony Orchestra is the school’s highest-level orchestra offering and provides opportunities for mastery-level performers to increase performance skills and precision on stringed, woodwind, brass and percussion instruments. This class covers performance and production, analysis and theoretical studies, historical and cultural contributions and influences, creative aspects of music and appreciation of music. It provides assistance as it organizes objectives for self-paced progress through all four levels. It also stresses individual progress and group experiences. The Joyful Noise Symphony Orchestra is a Full Symphony Orchestra and requires the highest of skill and ability on your instrument.

Wind, Brass and Percussion students who desire to play in the SYMPHONY may register for the class and will also complete a placement audition. This process allows the director to properly assign students to the appropriate music part & chair, based on experience and musical ability. [1] It is the objective that no student from the woodwind, brass or percussion families be turned away from the symphonic experience, but properly placed, with the director acquainted with the skillset of each, providing a knowledge of how to best train and utilize them. In a RARE case a student may not be ready for the level of difficulty the literature that the Symphony will be playing and will be asked to wait for another year and encouraged to try again to be invited to play.

Symphony music shall be selected well in advance of the auditions for woodwinds, brass & percussion and handed out to the strings; if time permits Chamber Orchestra will read this music before the end of first semester. This shall allow ample time for them to prepare for their auditions, to be held during the final week of the first semester. Furthermore, all students will then have the Christmas vacation time to practice their parts before the first meeting in January, everyone knowing where they sit!




[1] Regarding the woodwinds, brass instruments, numerous “ordered parts”, i.e., 1st trumpet, 2nd trumpet, 1st flute, 2nd flute, piccolo, etc. shall be assigned based on the auditions. Percussion instruments require abilities across the entire family and some students may be better on certain pieces of music repertoire selected.

 

Recorder Classes

Recorder classes are available to give younger students the opportunity to begin to read music, play real music on the recorder, and understand basic music theory. Students will be taught proper posture, how to read and play music, and instrument care. The recorder class is a great way to introduce your child to basic music principles and basic music appreciation. Available to children age 6 and up, students will learn note recognition and rhythm. By the mid-year recital, they will be able to play several songs on a recorder. This is a great way to prepare your child for beginner band or orchestra.

The recorder classes are limited in size and divided roughly by age and ability. The recorder season is 29 weeks, and culminates in recitals for family rather than concerts. This is less threatening for younger students. Dates for recitals will be posted on our Location and Important Dates page.

 

BEGINNER RECORDER

12:00-12:30
Instructor: Laurel Wilbanks

This is for students from age 6 and up who know nothing about music or instruments (or who have come up from our Joyful Noisemakers!). The class will include gentle instruction in the basics of reading music, learning notes on the recorder, and playing a variety of simple songs. Students must practice at home to be able to master the music they’re working on in class.

Student requirements: A folding wire stand and “concert dress”. We are changing our Method Book for this class to the Essential Elements Recorder Classroom Instruction book. You can find it at most music stores or order from Amazon. You will also need a recorder that can come apart into 2 or 3 pieces for easy cleaning. Nothing from the dollar store, but when you get the book, look at their recorders too.

 

INTERMEDIATE RECORDER

11:30-12:00
Instructor: Laurel Wilbanks


This class builds on what was learned in Beginner Recorder, adding notes and techniques, as well as more complicated rhythms and more advanced music.

Student requirements: A folding wire stand and “concert dress”. We are using Ed Sueta Recorder Method Book Two for this class. You can find it at most music stores or order from Amazon.
