John Yarrington : Have We Had This Conversation?

Review: Most choral conductors will confess to having uttered the rhetorical, "Have we had this conversation?" more than a few times. But there is a hopeful promise in knowing that we can have new, more effective conversations with our school, church or community choirs that will be aided greatly by the solution-oriented techniques in this practical book by the noted choral conductor, John Yarrington. A must-read for conductors searching for new rehearsal strategies, motivational techniques and personal inspiration, this text includes specific procedures for addressing text considerations, improving conducting gestures, and developing ensemble skills, tonal beauty and musicality. Dr. Yarrington also provides a systematic approach to the preparation and performance of many different works, and music excerpts with recommended score markings accompany specific information about how to study, present, perfect, and perform each piece with appropriate tone, style and expressiveness.
