NED Directors, Music Team Leaders & Music Educators

FRIDAY, MAY 4, 2018 •  1:00 - 4:00 PM

at the Courtyard Marriott (HQ) Hotel

MASTER CLASS PRESENTATION
with Dr. Jim Henry

  •  A KINESTHETIC APPROACH TO CHORAL TECHNIQUE
    • The ways in which a choral director can incorporate movement as physical metaphors to develop skills such as tuning, articulation, vocal support, choral blend and interpretation.  Find out what peanut butter, old windows, rubber bands, beach balls, magic markers, ski lifts, taffy, and onion skins have to do with choral music.
  • BLEND SCHMLEND: THE POWER OF THE INDIVIDUAL IN CHORAL MUSIC MAKING
    • This session will consider ways in which to foster individual ownership in the process of choral music making, and its effect on "Blend," Interpretation, Tuning, Performance, and Culture Building.
  • FROM PAPER TO POWERFUL
    • It is the fundamental experience of a director: You’re given a piece of sheet music and a performance date (which is always too soon). Your job is to turn that ink on a page to transformative experience for an audience.  This session will explore dynamic, practical, and time-efficient strategies for navigating your way through score study, the rehearsal process, and, ultimately, the curtain.
