Why is it that instrumentalists can read music more efficiently than vocalists? Sight singing (or sight reading in choir) is the tool we all have been told is the key to growing your choir students’ abilities. But where do you begin and what are the most important factors to include when building a sight reading routine? In this seminar not only will you be enlightened about how implementing choral sight reading into routine practice has affected the success of my choir. You will discover the way American culture has molded an imbalance of music education and literacy across the country. This seminar is most beneficial to music and choral teachers for grades 5-12 but certainly all music educators as well. Anyone who has a love for singing will come away with an even deeper appreciation for the art.
