Directing The Choral Music Program is a comprehensive introduction to developing and managing choral music programs from elementary through high-school and adult levels. Designed primarily as a choral methods text for the undergraduate music education curriculum, it is also useful for choral directors in schools, churches, and communities. Broad in scope and practical in orientation, the book is structured around three basic units: the administrative process, rehearsal and performance planning, and choral techniques. In addition to core topics - including recruitment and audtioning, classroom managment, vocal development, and curriculum and performnace planning - it features many subjects not covered in other texts, such as student discipline, philosophy of choral music education, and history of choral conducting. The author presents material on directing show choirs and musicals; organizing choir tours, festivals, and contests; working with adolescent singers; teaching sight-singing skills.
