James Jordan Home > Chant
These new resources from James Jordan and James Whitbourn are intended to encourage music educators to incorporate plainchant as an essential tool for teaching intonation, phrasing, and musical line while also building community within an ensemble.
Teaching Musicianship and Human Sensibilites through Chant
This revolutionary pedagogical application uses chant for teaching aural awareness and a natural and intuitive understanding of musical line. The pedagogy was borne out of the Westminster Choral Institute at Oxford, where chant has become a part of the daily regimen of the Grammy-nominated Westminster Williamson Voices. James Jordan incorporates this pedagogy into the daily warmups of his choirs.
