In Seminars students will explore the essential pedagogical principles underpinning professional standard choir/ensemble direction and rehearsal. They will explore core pedagogical repertoire that supports the sequential building of skills in student choirs/ ensembles, and will establish their own resource files of musical materials suitable for a variety of ages and ability levels. Students will be given opportunities to direct the choir/ensemble as well as to arrange music in a variety of styles. They will broaden their knowledge of varied genres of music as typically used in the profession, such as classical, jazz, pop, calypso, gospel and folk. Teaching methods that can maximise motivation, progress, concentration and focus within choral and instrumental ensembles will be discussed and explored in class.
