75/1070H Finding Your Teacher Voice A guide to choral pedagogy with practical strategies for every classroom and choir by Katie O’Connor-Ballantyne / Book
Singing is an integral part of any music classroom, but the voice works differently than other instruments and needs its own specific strategies. Whether you’re an instrumentalist who finds yourself teaching choir, or a vocalist who is an expert at singing, this book can make your rehearsals more successful. Beginning with an exhortation to use your own voice as a singing example—even if it’s not perfect—it presents all the skills your singers need to learn: posture, diction, pitch, notation, and the list goes on. Each chapter offers a clear overview of a singing goal, then lists several strategies you can use to achieve it with your group.
