7. Intonation problems tend to fall into two fundamental categories: physiological and psychological. Physiological Way that singers produce the tone Psychological How singer hears tone before they sing Wine, Thomas, Check Your Intonation, The Choral Journal, (April 2004): 23-27.

8. The majority of intonation problems stem from faults in vocal technique. This is mentioned to dispel one of the biggest myths regarding intonation: one with good ears does not always sing in tuneThe biggest mistake choral conductors make is attributing a problem with intonation to singers' understanding of a pitch, rather the production of it. Skelton, Kevin D, Choral Intonation, The Choral Journal, (September 2005): 28-49.

20. Choristers must posses knowledge of musical and expressive concepts pertaining to intonation and well-tuned singing, particularly the establishment of a systematic approach to music reading Grant, Joe, Improving Pitch and Intonation, The Choral Journal, (December 1987): 5-9.

21. Literacy Dont train your kids to be mocking birds! Teach them to read! Inhibitions Fear of being wrong Culture of testing If I dont play it for them? No, but we can read it together! Raise your hand if you perceive youve made a mistake

22. Literacy Probing Questions Was it correct? What was wrong? How was it wrong? Too High? Too Low? Etc. How might we fix it? Basics Direction Step vs leap Kids will get dangerously close!!!!! Just take the time to talk about it

23. Literacy Try and teach/incorporate a little theory Scales, intervals, chords Teach them the vocabulary Error detection General rehearsal idea CORNERS Give them responsibility Solfege is your friend! Hand-sign solfege can be your BEST friend!

37. It wasnt raining when Noah built the ark. ~ Howard Ruff (financial advisor)~ Your present circumstances don't determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start. ~ Nido Qubein (President of High Point Univ) ~ REMEMBER!!!

38. REMEMBER!!! Takes Longer Slow And Steady Wins The Race!!!! Better in long run Incorporate into your teaching/rehearsal style Be discerning Every publisher has something they are willing to sell you! IT WILL PAY OFF!!!!!! I hated every minute of training, but I said, 'Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion. ~ Muhammad Ali ~

39. Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant. ~ Robert Louis Stevenson (author: Treasure Island) ~

40. Teaching, like any truly human activity, emerges from ones inwardness, for better or worse. As I teach, I project the condition of my soul onto my students, my subject, and our way of being together. The entanglements I experience in the classroom are often no more or less than the convolutions of my inner life. Viewed from this angle, teaching holds a mirror to the soul. If I am willing to look in that mirror and not run from what I see, I have a chance to gain self-knowledgeand knowing myself is as crucial to good teaching as knowing my students and my subject. -Parker Palmer from The Courage to Teach

41. When You Look Into the Mirror, What Do You See? Are you teaching and developing skills, independence, and LITERACY? Or simply pounding parts? What do youre students deserve to see?
