Choral Conducting begins with an overview of what is involved in leading a choral group. It then examines theories of learning and human behavior, the history of choral music and the conductor's role. The book discusses issues of the conductor-vocalist relationship, the mechanics of singing, rehearsal strategies, and more. A final overview of what makes a successful conductor rounds out this comprehensive guide, making it the perfect college-level text for students of choral conducting, and a resource for teachers and choral conductors.
