Featured Clinician: Mary Ellen Junda, Ed.D


In this workshop, Dr. Junda will expand on traditional approaches to choral instruction with the aim of developing a community of singers who are comfortable with creative, spontaneous and diverse approaches to making music in a variety of settings and for varied purposes. With Kodály-based instructional techniques as a foundation, a framework will be introduced for designing curriculum and choral programs with an emphasis on creativity, reflective practice, engagement, service, and social consciousness.  

The goals are to develop a singing culture in which students

  • respect their own role and the role of others
  • contribute to the culture of the school in meaningful ways
  • develop confidence in their creative abilities
  • become a force for social change.

A reading packet of approximately 15 choral selections will be provided for each workshop participant and will be explored throughout the workshop sessions.
