Rate this:
This program is based on a cross-disciplinary educator workshop in which Indiana University choir director James Mumford employed choral singing as a tool for participant self-discovery and education. As students, the participants came to grips with the fear of public performance as they experienced firsthand Mumford's empowering method of instruction, which involves creating a climate of trust, gently holding everyone to high standards, stimulating engagement through passion, and validating others' difficult past experiences without being constrained by them. Footage of the participants back in the classroom illustrates how the workshop's lessons translate to the real world.
