Written, researched, and compiled by scholars with a wealth of teaching and conducting experience, the Teaching Music through Performance in Choir series remains one of the most important resources for choir directors at any level.
Choosing repertoire is one of the most important and time-consuming tasks in which choral conductors engage. One of the many benefits of this series is the pairing down of the overwhelming number of compositions available by a number of seasoned music education professionals. In addition, descriptions of musical elements and suggestions for teaching can help present the material once chosen.
Approximately 25% of the music in this volume is for tenor-bass ensembles, 25% for treble voices, and the rest for SATB groups.
