A fantastic resource!

I found out about this podcast a few months ago, and really enjoy listening to the episodes. Packed with great tips and reminders for choir leaders.

Utterly brilliant for choir leaders!

I'd already started my community choir and was a couple of years into my conductor training when I came across Total Choir Resources. I wish I'd found them earlier. They have the knack of covering the very same issues that I might be facing with my own choir and provide me with inspiring solutions. I love the podcasts which I listen to without fail (and sometimes go back to listen again some weeks later.) Victoria and Christine's tone and content is pitched "just right" for new and developing choirs and their budding conductors. Their sense of humour is such a great help too when you think you have an intractable problem that you've never going to solve ahead of the next performance. The resources on the website are superb - the warm-ups, the course content (I bought the one on score preparation which hadn't been dealt with at my conducting course yet) and their hints and tips are simply invaluable. Keep up the good work, you are a godsend to choir leaders.
