Singing Intentionally: Making decisions about what to teach and why
Saturday, September 11, 2021
10:00 am - 12:00 pm EST/ZOOM
Zoom links will be shared via email one day prior to the workshop session.
What do you do when a song that you’ve loved and taught for years turns out to have a troubled past? How do you make sure this doesn’t happen again? In this session we’ll talk about the origins of some famous folk songs, how to research folk song history, intentional planning of song literature, and ideas about how to substitute in new songs for those that need replacing.
