ChoirTeach Resource

August 5th, 2013

Welcome to ACDA’s online magazine for choral director/music educators who are searching for answers and need fresh ideas or techniques to meet practical needs and challenges.

ChorTeach articles can be a breath of fresh air for you and provide you with ideas and techniques that give you a lift and aid your singers in reaching the goals you and they have set. ChorTeach is designed for those who work with amateur singers at all levels — public and private schools, churches, synagogues, community organizations, etc.
