Our Research Associate, Dr Michael Bonshor, just published his book, ‘The Confident Choir: A Handbook for Leaders of Group Singing’ (Rowman & Littlefield).
Along with a range of philosophical and pedagogical approaches to confidence building for choir leaders and singers, ‘The Confident Choir’ contains suggestions and tips, activities and exercises, real-life case studies, and transcribed conversations with singers about the factors that affect their confidence, both positively and negatively. The book was designed with choir leaders in mind, and contains practical applications of many psychological frameworks for use in rehearsal and performance. Because it is packed with so many insightful perspectives from amateur singers, it is also likely to be of interest to anyone who has had experience of singing in a choir.
