Starting a Choral Program - Please help!
Date: March 25, 2014
To any music teacher, I could use some insight and help!
In the fall, I'll be working at a high school in Chicago as a founding choral/music teacher. The school has no music library, and many of the students have had no prior music experience. I imagine that the majority of my first year or two will be a mix of choral singing and general music classes to teach the basics (theory, ear training, etc.).
Does anyone who has either started a music/choral program or has entered the profession to help advance one have any advice, recommendations, or insights into a situation like my own?
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
