My first couple of months as chorister, I didn't have a plan. I was confused, and spent the late hours of Saturday and the wee hours of Sunday trying to come up with what in the world would take place in music time at 9 am Sunday morning. I was miserable. So. . .I developed this monthly schedule so I would know where I was going, and where I'd been. It was a life saver in December, which would have been more chaotic than it already was. At least I didn't have to worry about Primary!
After putting the schedule together, I create the month's worth of visual aids. That way, I hardly need prep time all month.
