MMED 744 Taking Your Choir to the Next Level

3 credits 45.0 hours
700 level graduate course

This choral class will explore ways to improve your choral teaching by reviewing many foundations of solid choral education. Time will be spent discussing how to develop a clear choral teaching philosophy and how to choose appropriate literature that will meet the abilities of the choir and challenge them to achieve a higher goal. Additional topics will include score preparation, rehearsal techniques, and the sequencing of rehearsals. Included will be reading of new choral octavos from smaller or lesser know publishers. Each participant will be given several opportunities to experiment and use new ideas and learned concepts by conducting the class in short rehearsals.

This course is not repeatable for credit.
