The Cross-Choral Training® voice program, proven healthy and effective through independent research published in the Journal of Voice*, is functional voice training for young singers, based on the latest research in voice science. This program will train teachers to develop individual voices and choral ensembles with a foundation in classical technique, but also encompassing the techniques required for authentic performances across a range of styles, from classical to contemporary, world, folk, music theater and pop.
The Cross-Choral Training musicianship program introduces a successful approach to developing music literacy skills in the choral classroom using several complementary systems for sight reading, ear-training and score analysis, providing the greatest fluency in the widest range of settings. Teachers will learn how to begin literacy programs to establish a foundation of skills and understanding as well as study techniques for advanced programs.
