Flexible voicing and thoughtful arranging provides options for ensembles of any combination or age (including those with changing voices). Choir directors will appreciate the efficiency that Choir Starters brings to their rehearsals, and singers will jump at the chance to begin every rehearsal with real tunes! Each Choir Starter is arranged in two parts, each written in both treble and bass clefs.

This collection is useful for choirs of all ages and abilities. Success Breeds Success. Choir Starters enables students to succeed from day one, leading them into the right frame of mind to tackle their first pieces of concert repertoire. 2) Use Choir Starters as simple test pieces to help evaluate each student's range and ability. After hearing individual singers - alone or in groups - the director can quickly and easily assign the correct voice parts. (This is especially helpful for those middle-school years, when voices are changing at different rates.) 3) Choir Starters will help singers develop an ear for basic harmony. Also, each arrangement has unique challenges that help reinforce sight-reading skills. 4. Each day's arm-up sequence can culminate in the singing of a Choir Starter. 5) When a rehearsal ends earlier than planned, sing a Choir Starter (or two!) to productively round out the remaining time. 6) America's musical legacy is ensured by teaching and singing treasured songs such as these. 7) Use Choir Starters in your grading process by having students sing duets or quartets. 8) Performance. Round out a program for an outreach event with a Choir Starter. These arrangements may also be useful for young singers entering small-group contests or for an end-of-concert combined choir. 9) The songs in Choir Starters are fun to sing!
