Editorial Reviews

Although many new teachers dream of conducting their own choruses, few imagine doing so in a middle school setting. Freer provides a masterly overview of the rewards and challenges facing those who find themselves conducting in that setting.... the book provides a wealth of information for teachers at any stage of their careers.... Well written and acessible, Freer's contribution to the field is powerful and should be a part of all collections devoted to practice and pedagogy. Highly recommended.
