Dr. Marshaun R. Hymon asked the question, “How does choir impact young Black men?” based on his life experience and the impact choir had on him. What Dr. Hymon found provides us with tangible things we can do to create the space, respect, opportunities, and experiences to allow for our singers to be their most authentic selves. This episode is designed to give you time to think and find ways to implement “catalysts of change” in your choir classroom. As Dr. Hymon says towards the end of this episode - “You have the power!”

Everyone goes through tough times and experiences hard things. Those are the moments that define us as we pick ourselves back up and keep going. They are the stories and bruises we come back stronger from. Originally, this interview, with the talented Robyn Lana of the Cincinnati Youth Choir, was simply her sharing the story of her health crisis and how she overcame the shock, treatment, and is now 100%. Then it hit me….Robyn’s health crisis is not unlike what we are all experiencing right now. She unexpectedly lost the ability to do what we love, to be in rehearsals, provide stellar concerts, and live life emerged in music. Her willingness to unpack the story of overcoming this health shock and crisis offers us tangible insight and suggestions for how we can all get through this tricky time and emerge stronger and better in the journey and on the other side. Thank you for sharing your story Robyn - this is by far one of the more emotional episodes I’ve ever recorded and I simply can’t wait to hear what you think!

Looking for music this fall? Perhaps it’s time to live into the storyteller you really are and build a concert structure based on telling that story. Not quite sure what we mean by that? Josh Pedde, Artistic Director of the Indianapolis Children’s Choir, is a storytelling genius! His ideas for new ways to structure concerts and weave music into an entire experience for both singers and audience really helps you analyze your why and present the most engaging and impactful concert experience. In a time where we have to all be advocates for our programs, this episode helps you unpack your “why” and select the best music to share that story.

In “The Dr. is in” episodes, your host, Dr. Emily Williams Burch answers listener questions on a host of things from music ed questions to music theory and music history and sometimes just life in general. Today, the Dr. is answering the question “now what?” While researching and preparing for this episode, Dr. Burch had the epiphany that what lies ahead is not unlike starting your first job. You all remember it - that first job - the unknown, the fears, the confidence, the growth. In light of that epiphany, this Q&A session features a convo with somewhat who JUST finished that first year on the job. Emma Huennekens graduated with a Bachelors in Music from Georgia Southern University in May of 2019 and just finished her first year on the job. We talk about the first job, things you wish you knew, what is scary about the unknown, how do you fill gaps and find confidence to pave your own path….and how all of this relate to right now?

What do we as choral directors and teachers need to know about copyright? Who do we ask? This interview with Savannah, GA Lawyer, Mills Fleming, offers insight and suggestions as we all learn more about the world of choir in our new unknown. Think of this conversation as a review of the one or two days you had about copyright in choral methods back in the day and ideas for how to move forward as you plan music and performances for the coming year, either in person or virtually.

This repertoire exploration episode is extra special! Today we take a deep dive into the research of non-idiomatic choral music by Black composers with conductor/researcher Dr. Marques Garrett. In our conversation, we talk about how he got interested in this research topic, what he hopes to accomplish with his online database, and what we as singers, conductors, and teachers can learn from the research. As part of the repertoire exploration, Dr. Garrett even gives us a glimpse into a few of his favorite composers and their compositions.
