Choir Care

Caring for your Choir

It seems like another choir directing book was in order...

There's so much more...

There's more to working with choirs than just knowing gesture.  Yes, it's very important to know gesture, but we have to know how to work with our choirs.

This time I'm looking at the non-conducting part of rehearsal; how to do the mundane work of organizing music, managing the rehearsal process, learning the spirit of the choir, developing a rehearsal plan, staying spiritual inside the rehearsal, and preparing for the concert.  

All of these are areas that I struggled with.  I learned by trial and error, by watching and listening to others, and by creating a consistant ideal to what I wanted my choir, my rehearsal, and my musical life to look like.

This book will be released sometime in 2023.
