Fundamentals of Singing – There are dozens of studies showing that learning a musical skill improves
concentration and focus. Using fun musical examples, attendees will leave with renewed confidence in
their personal musicianship.
Allison Hartzell, Artistic Director, Coppell Community Chorale
Making Connections – Who is on your playlist? Choirs perform music from the medieval era to the
present. Gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for all types of music and why it matters.
Dr. Joshua Brown, Director of Choral Activities, Ouachita Baptist University
Elements of Music – Choirs strive for Sound Unity. Singers use rhythm, melody, harmony, form, timbre,
tone, expression, and intonation. But what does that mean?
Nathan Benavides, Director, CCC Variations and Erin Baker, Director, Coppell Children’s Chorus
Follow the Director – Singing in a choir is all about teamwork. Being part of a choir helps you consider
how the individual helps shape the whole. Build your choral confidence with group performance skills.
Greg Clancy, Musical Director, Vocal Majority (tentative)
