Cultivating the Choral Art

An Introductory Course on Conducting Pedagogy and Choral Rehearsal Technique

(please scroll down)


Welcome to Cultivating the Choral Art: An Introduction to Conducting Pedagogy and Choral Rehearsal Technique.

This course is designed to introduce emerging conductors to the pedagogy of conducting technique, while at the same time instilling solid rehearsal technique skills.

There are most certainly texts currently on the market containing instruction on each of these topics; however, it is the aim of this text to provide simultaneous instruction in both conducting pedagogy and choral rehearsal technique. This is essential for an effective and comprehensive preparation for the multifaceted requirements of the profession. Take some time to explore our website and please reach out with any questions.
