The structure of the class is that students will pick songs that they like and know from different genres and work on various parts from week to week.

Every week each student will come prepared with the chorus or verse of their song and any movement that they have come up with. As a united class, we will only give positive reinforcement on each piece. For every class, students will add on to their song until they have their finished product. All final performances will then be videotaped, and each individual student can only purchase their own copy to watch and enjoy.
