What do children’s choir conductors need?
Developing your work with children’s choirs.
In this session, we will provide a space to reflect on our work as childrens’ choir conductors.
We will reflect on our knowledge and teaching philosophies, practical elements of rehearsals and the wider needs of us, as conductors, and our choir members. We will start with thinking about models of vocal education with children, then we will go deeper into questions about the professionalisation and competences of choir conductors working with children. Throughout the session, we will reflect on working with children in settings of collective singing.
This will be an interactive session where we will work in small groups reflecting on your practice in order to develop current choir practices.
