Event description

Description

This practical workshop is aimed at both non-music teachers and music teachers/tutors, Key Stages 1 & 2 with little or no previous experience of conducting. The course is aimed primarily at teachers who will be directing choirs but many of the principles also apply to the leading of other music groups. The course will focus on the following elements:

  • Communication and Posture
  • Simple beat patterns
  • Setting and maintaining the correct tempo
  • Cueing parts


Participants will be involved in a series of practical activities to develop these skills and will take away tips on how to warm up, rehearse and direct their choirs, to help them lead their singers with confidence.

This session will be led by John Sandford, Classroom Music Practitioner and professional Choral Music Director with over 30 years’ experience running children’s and adult choirs. John holds a Certificate of Teaching from the Royal School of Music specialising in voice training and work with individuals and groups to improve their singing technique and vocal health, and is a member of the Association of British Choral Directors.
