District Choir Benchmarks


Students that compete in District Choir are representing the level of excellence at Tomball High School. In order to assess their progress, teach them independent rehearsal techniques and ensure that they are adequately prepared for the audition, they will submit benchmark singing tests before they are able to attend the district auditions.

They must be able to sing approximately 85% of music to pass the benchmarks. They will be assessed on notes and  rhythms. Submissions will be made in the Schoology Course.
