Organized into three sections, Educating Young Singers offers strategies for integrating pedagogical and musical knowledge into your rehearsals that can help to lay a foundation for rewarding performances. Each section provides ideas, processes, demonstrations, and activities that will help promote singing and musicianship in young choristers and inspire you to find new ways to bring the joy of learning and performing music to the young people in your choirs.

Unit one-First Things First-addresses the steps taken prior to rehearsal including choosing repertoire, embracing the world of vocal music, learning the score, and developing conducting gestures. Unit two-The Toolbox-provides a vast array of pedagogical techniques and materials like tools for developing the voice, musical literacy, part-singing, and creativity. The final unit-Putting It All Together-offers suggestions for application such as presenting the songs, rehearsal planning, and dealing with choral challenges.
