Master the basics of rehearsing and directing choral ensembles

Presenter: Anette Kerkovius

Anette is a Choral Specialist and has directed children’s choirs, church choirs, community choirs and all age groups within the school environment in South Africa, New Zealand and Australia. Anette was the Director of Music at All Saints’ College in Perth, (2011–2018) as well as the Junior School Music Coordinator (2004–2010). She now runs her own Music Studio and is a Music Education Consultant for schools.

Venue: All Saints’ College, Ewing Ave, Bull Creek

The complete course will be offered twice during 2019:

August: Wednesdays 7, 14, 21 and 28 August, 4.30 - 6.00pm

October: School holidays 1, 2, 3, and 4 October, 9.00 - 10.30am

Four principal sessions, each of 90 minutes, focusing on:

  • Vocal development of the participants: The course also includes one individual voice consultation.
  • Developing the voices of choir members: Vocal health and basic technique, including the purpose of “warm-ups”.
  • Choral sound: How to develop good blend; intonation and listening skills; vowels and diction; the development of part singing.
  • Conducting technique: Commencing with the basic patterns and moving towards expressive conducting.
  • Repertoire: Copies of examples are included in the course, and the focus is on conducting these. A list of recommended repertoire from a variety of resources is included.

Anette will also visit each choir once to give feedback and advice, and run it like a workshop in consultation with the choral director. There will be a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 6 people in the participants’ group. It will be a practical course where there will be lots of singing and conducting, as well as reflection on how to develop a choral program. Course notes together with original copies of the repertoire will be provided.

On completion of the full course, participants will receive an ANCA Professional Development Certificate

Total cost: $500 per participant. To book, please visit:
