Training/Studying Recommendations for Teaching Middle/High School Boy's Vocal Pedagogy?
Date: September 29, 2014
I have been teaching vocal music for six years now, and would like to take my learning to the next level.
I have recently been directing a changing/changed voice boy's choir, and am now finding to be insufficient what vocal pedagogy, etc. I learned while in college (BA in music + teaching credential) and what I have picked up through experience.
Therefore, I would like to continue my learning (while still teaching full-time...). Does anyone have good recommendations as to how to proceed? What critical resources, etc. I should pursue? Since I am teaching full-time, I cannot pursue every opportunity, and need to focus in on the best possible resources that will help me to grow. Do you have any recommendations? (Training, videos, books, individuals, etc.)
Basically, I want to spend some time working to master (as much as possible) vocal pedagogy for the adolescent male voice.
Thank you in advance!
