The Resource the Modern Choral Director Needs

This podcast is my everyday way to become a better choral director. It is engaging, thoughtful, and inspiring to people who want to be the best versions of themselves in this important field of work.

Fantastic Resource

Anyone leading, singing or interested in choral music should make this a part of their regular podcast rotation. Topics range from the practical (e.g. vocal pedagogy, teaching sight reading) to the philosophical (choirs and diversity/equity, how we interact with our colleagues online and what we value in our ensembles). Both inspirational and helpful!
