Efficient and Engaging Rehearsal Strategies

Following on from this year’s highly successful Choral Connect convention in Wellington, we’re delighted to release the first in a series of videos we recorded at selected Choral Connect sessions. The first of these is Brent Stewart’s presentation, titled Efficient and Engaging Rehearsal Strategies for the Community Choir. Brent is the Music Director of The Orpheus Choir of Wellington and, in this video, shares his strategies on how to get through repertoire efficiently and enjoyably, and with excellent results, even when rehearsal time is limited.

A short clip from Brent’s video is below. The full one-hour video is on the ACD Video Channel, accessible to current ACD members via login and password. Directors of a Big Sing or Kids Sing choir have automatic ACD membership for the year in which they take part in TBS or TKS.


Other titles on our ACD Video Channel are:

  • The Ictus – the conductor’s point of contact – Karen Grylls
  • Voice matching and singer placement in choirs – David Squire
  • Are you really singing? Achieving the correct resonance with children’s voices – Megan Flint

We’ll be releasing further videos from Choral Connect ’19 over the next few months.
