Choral Pedagogy, Third Edition, is the ideal text for voice teachers, choral conductors, church musicians, and professional and amateur singers who wish to develop strategies for lifelong singing. It concisely and clearly presents the principles of voice pedagogy from the perspective of both conducting and voice science in a user- friendly fashion, including helpful charts and simple anatomic diagrams. In addition, it offers teaching methods from history and philosophy, medical and voice science, and pedagogical concepts from active musical experts. Special attention is given to the needs of amateur singers and conductors. Topics covered include choral diction, posture and seating, rehearsal practices, and matters of vocal health.. For the third edition, the authors have completely revised the text, updating the medical information and expanding the exercises. They have also added two new chapters: . A chapter entitled "Singing in the 21st Century" that considers the vocal/choral demands of the choral repertoire being written in this century. A chapter on teaching young boys to sing written by Vic Oakes, the conductor of the Chattanooga Boys Choir. With its updates and additions, Choral Pedagogy, Third Edition, is a valuable resource for students of choral conducting, music education, church music, and choral singing.
