The Production of Quality Choral Performance: A Review of Literature
Rolsten, Kathy
Update: Applications of Research in Music Education, v35 n1 p66-73 Oct 2016
This review of literature is a synthesis of research surrounding the production of superior choral performance. Findings described in this review suggest director characteristics, rehearsal techniques, singer behaviors, and auxiliary supports that are important to, or common in, the creation of meritorious performance. Effects of instructional methodologies on performance achievement and differences among directors of exceptional choirs are also presented. Although replication of the studies synthesized in this review is necessary for a more complete understanding of how quality performance is produced, music educators may want to compare and contrast their personal characteristics and rehearsal techniques with those of the directors of outstanding performance described in this review. Suggestions for future research are included.
