Multi-sensory, student-centered rehearsal techniques that encourage the development of critical thinking and musical problem-solving skills are featured on this DVD. Incorporating a combination of kinesthetic, cognitive, and affective approaches, students make musical decisions about topics including choral tone, musical phrasing, thematic balance, dramatic intent, and poetic meaning. Using a variety of learning modalities results in more fully engaged students and also produces stronger, more creative musicians who will be better prepared if their goal is to become tomorrow's conductors and teachers. Leslie Guelker-Cone is director of Choral Activities and Coordinator of Vocal Studies at Western Washington University. In addition to conducting the Concert Choir and the Western Voices chamber ensemble, she teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in choral conducting and choral music education.
