What does it take to generate and sustain a flourishing, robust choir? In this workshop, teachers will explore the necessary components that make up successful and inspirational teaching:

  • Appealing, high-quality materials that reflect the diversity in our classrooms
  • Strategies and tools that develop part-singing and accurate intonation
  • Vocalizes and exercises that will get your choir to sound their very best!
  • Motivating your students to take musical risks
  • Extracting musical elements from sample choral literature
  • Teacher qualities that promote student achievement and enthusiasm

Invite your teaching colleagues and be ready for a day filled with fun, camaraderie and new teaching ideas!
