Written by Professor Emeritus at the University of Western Ontario in Canada, this handbook is an excellent resource for directors of high school, church, and community choirs who have mastered the basics but wish to bring the quality of their choirs up to a higher level. Specific, up-to-date, easy-to-read information on the voice, vocal sections, and seating arrangements is included. As a result of many years of experimentation with his own outstanding choirs, Deral Johnson is able to offer many down-to-earth tips on the use of instruments and various solutions for typical problems of school and church choirs. The suggestions for the conductor's preparation before a rehearsal and the actual techniques used during a rehearsal are a welcome addition to every choral director's library of knowledge.
