Help! I'm an Instrumentalist Teaching Choir

October 56, 2019

In this atmosphere of educational change, music teachers are being asked to wear multiple hats. This course is designed to help the band or orchestra educator with a few of the essentials for teaching choir. Directors will walk away with a realization that they already have a number of the tools needed for success in the choral world, and will take away a few ideas and resources to develop one’s own choral abilities.

Instructor: Dr. Robert L. Sinclair
