Let Us Sing

Improve your skills, Improve your Choir

Wayne Moore

A Brief Guide for the New or Untrained Choir Director

Choirs have an important leadership role for congregational worship. In some worshiping communities, a member of the congregation is asked to be the choir director. Perhaps that person is someone with a good voice or who has some training on an instrument. Choral conducting requires other skills. This modest handbook is designed to help new or untrained choir directors improve both themselves and their choir and also increase the personal satisfaction of teaching and performing choral music.

The book offers suggestions for assembling or getting to know the choir, then gives brief instruction for managing rehearsals, conducting the choir (including preparing score notes), and working with accompaniment options. Then it goes on to teach about vocal anatomy, including breath management; phonation, resonation, regirstion; and intonation control and enunciation. Some warm-up exercises are also included. New or untrained choir directors will find it a quick and valuable introduction to their new task of preparing their choirs for the significant task of leading the worshiping community.
