Resources for Choral Directors

Handouts that I use in classes, workshops, and convention sessions are posted here. If a link is "broken," the file is being updated.

 


 

Bach Cantata Instrumentation - Bach Cantatas organized in a chart by scoring commonalities.

My Favorite Choral Works - Every once in a while, someone asks me for my list of "can't live without" choral titles.

Repertoire Quality Checklist - Combining standards of the CMP and MMCP methodologies with the NSAE.

Score Analysis Method - A method for analyzing choral scores, combining the techniques and viewpoints of René Clausen, Drew Collins, Kenneth Jennings, Ann Howard Jones, Jameson Marvin, Daniel Moe, Weston Noble, Robert Shaw and Howard Swan.

Performing Settings of Poetic Texts for Chorus -A convention handout for my appearance at Ohio Music Educators Association Professional Development conference in 2012.

Staff paper - Instead of purchasing staff paper, download this and photocopy it for free. 12 5-line staves with no left- or right-hand barlines.

Repertoire Suggestions for Changing Voice Choirs - Lon Beery, John Cooksey, Lynne Gackle, Ken Phillips, and others helped me compile this list of top repertoire selections for singers in grades 6-9. This was compiled for my presentation at a national MENC (now NAfME) conference in 2006.
