Choir directors in worship settings experience many special challenges: a wide range of age and experience in the same choir, the need to prepare many different styles of music, fluctuating membership, unbalanced sections, etc. Working with ‘what you have available on any given weekend can be a real challenge. How can you turn them into an ensemble? How can you teach them about voice in the short time you have available? Can you get beyond teaching notes?
Step away from the keyboard and be comfortable in front of your choir!
