Instructional Techniques for the Non-Select Children's Chorus
By Patricia Bourne
Book and DVD

Practical and tested strategies from the author's years of real-world teaching experience. Designed specifically for the music educator working with non-auditioned children's choruses, this book addresses everything from recruiting to getting kids excited about singing, from warm-ups to programming and from working with parents to budgets. In addition to helpful how-tos, this valuable resource illustrates how children's choirs can become environments where participants learn a strong sense of community alongside high levels of musicianship.

The book includes a DVD that provides sight and sound to the strategies shared in narrative. Organized to follow the book, its sections include:
- The general music classroom as a venue for vocal instruction
- Rehearsal strategies for the public school elementary chorus
- Performances - before, during and after.

Whether you've taught children's choirs for years, you're thinking about starting a new program or you're just starting your career, this resource is a must-have filled with down-to-earth approaches and inspiring ideas.
