Designed to follow Essential Repertoire for the Young Choir, each of these outstanding volumes contains a selection of pieces especially selected to suit the needs of the particular voice type. In addition to high-quality, time-tested choral repertoire, both newer and favorite U.I.L. titles are represented. Accompanying each piece is a complete lesson plan which features objectives, historical/stylistic guidelines, choral techniques, rehearsal/performance tips, "assessment techniques" and "enrichment ideas." Whether used by itself or in conjunction with its companion method, Essential Musicianship, this book will cultivate in your students a high level of musicianship! Used in preparation for the more advanced Essential Repertoire books for the concert choir and the artist level concert choir, this edition for the developing choir is recommended for grades 9-10. This is an incomparable resource that will yield positive and lasting results in your music program!
