When I talk with other choir directors, one of the topics that always seems to come up is setting rehearsal expectations–choir directors want to know what expectations I have for my choirs, how I set rehearsal expectations, and what the logistics of my rehearsals look like. And our conversations often turn to issues with classroom management.
In my experience, there’s a direct correlation between what we expect/how we set rehearsal expectations and the classroom management in our choral classrooms. That makes how we set expectations incredibly important, especially at the beginning of the year. How we set and communicate expectations at the beginning of the year will affect how easy (or challenging) our classroom management is for the whole year. Do it right at the beginning, and you literally “set the tone” for the rest of the year!
In Episode #72 of the podcast, Part 3 in our “Back to School Series”, I share with you 8 Tips for Setting the Tone and Setting Clear Expectations in Your Choir Classroom. Follow these tips, and you will be setting up yourself (and your choir) for success–and, you will hopefully avoid any frustrating classroom management situations in the process!
