This workshop provides direction and guidance for beginning choral conductors. Its primary aim is to help in-service teachers as well as amateur conductors for churches, and other non-professional choirs with active learning based on the participants own situational needs. The overall goals are to enhance choral conducting skills, and identify and prepare for the multiple roles, responsibilities, and techniques required of a good
choral conductor.
The outline of the course is:
• Learning basic choral conducting techniques and leadership
• Implementing good rehearsal planning and leading effective rehearsals
• Leading choir harmonisation and teaching basic vocal techniques (including
posture, breathing, diction, intonation, and rhythmic skills)
• Selecting choral repertory and building choral programme
• Score reading and score preparation
• Other elements, including audition techniques, classification of voices, and
administration of choral organisations
This is a practical workshop conducted in Cantonese, with hands-on practice with a vocal ensemble made up of class participants. There will be opportunities for individual participants to conduct brief excerpts and receive comments from the instructor.
Participants who have attended at least 75% and pass the assessment of the course will be awarded a Certificate of Completion.
