Conducting choral music
This book is based upon actual research, i.e., a survey of numerous choral conductors to identify specific problems that they currently encounter and the extent to which they felt they were prepared in undergraduate school to deal with these problems. This book provides clear, concise, and accurate information on the development of conducting skills, devoting a full chapter to each of the following topics: improving choral tone and diction, maintaining vocal health, children's voices and the boy's changing voice, understanding of diverse musical styles from various historical periods, choir rehearsal techniques, planning effective programs and concerts, and administrative matters of planning and management. For those interested in Choral Conducting, Choral Methods and Techniques, and Secondary School Choral Music.
