Prescriptions for Choral Excellence
By

Rating
In shaping choral tone, directors often wish to improve the sound of their choir, but are challenged to pinpoint underlying problems or to guide singers toward solutions. Now, in Prescriptions for Choral Excellence, skilled vocal pedagogue Shirlee Emmons and leading choral director Constance
Chase equip choral directors with the practical tools they need to help singers achieve peak choral performance.
Drawing on years of experience, Emmons and Chase help choral directors and singers effectively diagnose and resolve problems. They cover topics ranging from breath management and diction to range and intonation, and much more. Beyond describing vocal difficulties, the book provides concrete
instructions on how to apply the concepts in day-to-day rehearsal and performance. The numerous practical exercises and planning aides allow directors to maximize both time and talent to elicit the highest potential from their singers. While grounded in the most up-to-date research in voice science,
the discussion of vocal anatomy and function is accessible to readers with no previous knowledge of voice science. Going beyond other vocal and choral guidebooks, the authors also apply the most current theories in leadership principles and group dynamics to choral settings, helping directors
translate their natural musicality and charisma into inspiring and motivational leadership.
A comprehensive and unique blend of practical expertise, voice science, and leadership psychology, Prescriptions for Choral Excellence is an invaluable guide for all choral directors seeking to create memorable and remarkable performances.

Reviews

As a conductor with more than thirty years' experience, I found this book to be rigorous, comprehensive, and dynamically user-friendly. The book presents an abundance of practical tools. The less experienced conductors will find this book indispensable and immediately accessible. This is a must read for choral directors at any level as well as for singers and teachers of singing. * American Music Teacher *
