Choral Methodology Workshop
This workshop offers participants an insight into choral pedagogy through a series of activities including singing, dancing and musical games. The following topics will be addressed in greater detail: the choral audition, the first rehearsal, the various functions of the choral warm-up, the choral sound, development of polyphonic skills in the rehearsal, score study and score preparation. Teaching techniques will be discussed based on well-selected repertory suitable for choirs of different ability levels (SAB, SATB, SSA material). The workshop will also attempt to give guidance to choir educators on how to develop choristers’ awareness in stylistically adequate performance and how to choose repertory accordingly. Laszlo Norbert Nemes has worked with choral ensembles all over the world and has a vast experience in working with both children and adult choirs, both amateur and professional singers.
