Introduction to Singing and Conducting Gregorian Chant
January 10, 2018
Designed for teachers who are new to conducting chant (and even to singing it), this seminar will cover the basics of reading pneumatic (square-note) notation, as well as give an introduction to understanding the rhythm and phrasing of the chant according to the classical Solesmes method. Building on these basics, conductors will progress through a series of basic gestures and exercises, culminating in the conducting of a Kyrie by the end of the session.
Handouts will be given with additional exercises and resources for developing skills further, and teaching tips for helping young singers understand conducting gestures and sing expressively will be addressed.
