Think back to your college days--remember Edwin Gordon? The guy that came up with Music Learning Theory?

The school bus is usually a mode of transportation we associate with the word “safe.” Most of our memories riding the school bus as youth are attributed to laughs, field-trips, & fun- but for some kids, the school bus doesn’t represent any of those things. For a select unlucky few, the school bus represents something much worse. A darkness that mos…
 
One question I often get is how to vocally place singers into their sections. If you’ve worked with the singers previously, you’ve got a pretty good idea of what part they should be singing. But what if the singers are brand new to you? Or their voice has changed since the last time you heard them? And how do you do it so it doesn’t take forever, a…
 
One of our objectives as choir directors is to teach our singers the basics of music theory, because that will help them to be more independent musicians.

On Christmas Eve of 2013, Patricia Burns of Lake Luzerne, NY would face the wrath of her crazed ex-husband - a violent offender she had been trying to evade for years.

On today’s episode, I’m discussing a topic that I’ve seen a lot of questions on lately, and that’s recruiting.

One of the biggest challenges for choir directors is warm-ups. Finding warm-ups, what warm-ups to use, selecting warm-ups, and then how to actually do warm-ups in rehearsal. I’ve also heard from some choir directors that they wish that choir warm-ups were just “done for them”. For some people, it’s that they aren’t confident singers and they aren’t…
