Description

Directing the Choral Music Program is a comprehensive introduction to developing and managing choral music programs from the elementary through the high-school level. Designed primarily as a choral methods textbook for the undergraduate music education curriculum, it will also be of interest to choral directors. The book is structured around three basic units: the administrative process, choral planning, and choral rehearsing. In addition to core topics-including recruitment and auditioning, classroom management, vocal development, and curriculum and performance planning-it covers many subjects not included in other texts, such as student discipline, philosophy of choral music education, and the history of choral conducting. It also features chapters on directing show choirs and musicals; organizing choir tours, festivals, and contests; working with changing voices; and developing sight-reading skills and theoretical understanding. Directing the Choral Music Program incorporates study and discussion questions, numerous illustrations and musical examples, lists of recommended reading and web sites, a variety of class projects, and lists of choral repertory and class materials. Broad in scope and practical in orientation, this book provides a solid basis for a career in choral directing.show more
