With the Central Bucks West High School Choir
To build a successful high school music program is to empower student leaders. But what does it really mean to be a student leader? How can they make a difference?
In this brilliant DVD, master clinician Tim Lautzenheiser speaks to the students of the Central Bucks West High School choir and band about how to bring leadership thinking into their everyday lives and music making. He offers a clear perspective of what is possible when young leaders choose excellence as the foundation of their leadership mission.
James Jordan encourages these same students to keep focus on why they connect through music, and on the rewards that come from those connections.
And together, James and Tim discuss the risk-taking that is needed by both conductor and ensemble when true music happens.
This DVD is a companion to the definitive choral methods text The School Choral Program, which breaks new ground in choral music education and provides choral directors with the tools they need to be successful in the classroom and at the podium.
Tim Lautzenheiser is a well-known name in the music education world as teacher, clinician, author, composer, consultant, adjudicator and, above all, a trusted friend to anyone interested in working with young people to develop a desire for excellence.
Widely acknowledged as one of the most influential conductors in America, James Jordan, through his seventeen textbooks and recordings, has brought about far-reaching pedagogical and philosophical changes in choral music and music education.
