Thank you, Stephania!
Comment: Re: The Young Conductor V - rehearsing and the piano
Ah, this is very helpful.  I am a pianist first, choral director second.  I just love to play.  So... it's easy for me to not only keep playing longer than they need it, but to play the accompaniment too early in our process.  Thank you for the insight into Eric's teaching, it's inspiration I wi...

That is a fantastic suggestion.  We'll see what we can do about that!

Thanks, Sundra!  I think there are many possibilities for mentoring pairs.  Looking forward to hearing more about your mentoring program.  We have one in MT for first-year teachers, and it was very helpful to me!

Great feedback.  Thanks, Dale!
Comment: Re: The Young Conductor I
Yay for this series!  One thing I'm working on as a "young" conductor who is also a proficient pianist is not leaning too much on the instrument to help me in rehearsal.  It's a difficult balance.  I agree- passion for this art is the necessary starting place.  Once you have that, the nuts and ...
Comment: Re: Betelehemu differences
I am also looking at this piece (SATB 1994), and noticing changes in m. 28-35 between syllables "bi" and "gbe" as in nibo lagbe Jesu and nibo labi Jesu.  It doesn't seem consistent.  Any thoughts on this part? 
Comment: Re: 5 Steps to Choral Public Domain Library Mastery
Hello!  I haven't been too successful with using CPDL, although I love the idea of it.  As a newer teacher, I am unfamiliar with many of the composers here and find it daunting to sift through the options.  One thing that I would love to find is a way to narrow down an already-started search by ...
Announcement: MT to Seattle
Hello fellow choir lovers!     I am a third year teacher in semi-rural Montana (Florence is just outside of Missoula) and I'm planning a choir tour for this Spring.  This is the first time we have done anything like this at my school, however, I have enjoyed some great tours as a singer.  ...
Comment: Re: That's Amore arr.
Thanks, Bruce!  I ordered it.  Glad it worked well for you, we're pretty excited about it!
Forum message: That's Amore arr.
Hello Everyone!     I love these forums!  So, we are planning a dessert show this February and want the theme to be "That's Amore".  Does anyone know of a great SATB arrangement (of the tune Dean Martin made famous by Warren & Brooks)?  I noticed there is a Kirby Shaw 2p arrangement o...
Community Forum Post: Tweet. Tweet?
Hello Everyone,  Is anyone using twitter?  I just started, and so far I like it.  Although my students aren't currently using it, I am able to get a lot of great information, and it's a good way to engage in the media.  My name is FCFalconChoir.  If you are unsure of how it works, here is a...
