From Concepts to Concerts by Dr. Earlene Rentz is intended to be used as a supplementary text for the choral rehearsal, providing exercises that teach concepts to choral singers. The exercises are arranged in a simple-to-complex order that will allow for success through all grade levels, providing challenges for young singers as well as more advanced students. Of course, teachers have the freedom to use these exercises in any way that is most helpful to them. To be fully used as the resource they were intended, this includes permission to copy for classroom use. Dr. Rentz has prepared this supplement based on her own experience in choral clinics and workshops. Presented here are a great collection of exercises and drills that will assist your students in improving musicianship. One book to use in all your classes!
