‘Must-have’ book now available as a PDF download… !
When the third book in the trilogy was released a couple of years ago, there were many reviews hailing ‘Seven Steps…’ as a ‘must-have’ resource for choirs and concert organisers … Tim’s experience is far-reaching, not least having been Choral Director for 3 choirs for many years, and now more than ever is determined to help fellow musicians and fellow choral directors overcome these worrying and testing times so that we can all bounce back stronger, wiser and with renewed energy…. singing is all over the news as being the one thing people can still do to keep their spirits up, bond and communicate with each other even from the confines of their own spaces and now is the opportunity to strengthen your choirs and audiences and resolve to put on one hell of a show when we can all return!
“Tim Knight has written a companion which is a ‘must have’ for every choir. He continually looks beyond the latest trends and thus the result is a book which provides excellent advice. With real examples given in an honest and frank way, he has provided a premium source from which choirs could, and should, easily flourish.” Review on ‘Seven Steps to more Successful Concerts’ by Robert T. Elliott – Choral Conductor and Adjudicator Tim has travelled countrywide previously doing many music workshops based on the books and these services are also now available online… just talk to Tim about your requirements and get the ball rolling.
