Thirty Years of Interviews with Adolescent Boys: Why They Sing & Why They Don't
with Patrick K. Freer
Thursday 3rd February at 5-7pm (UK time)
This course will be recorded and sent out to all pre-registered participants to watch in their own time.
Due to licensing laws, we are unable to sell this course retrospectively.
Highlights from new research will ground this discussion of what teachers can do to:
1) keep boys enrolled in choral singing during adolescence, 2) facilitate the return to choral singing by boys who withdraw, and 3) develop active and successful recruitment/retention strategies for different types of schools and choral situations.
There will be time for questions and answers with the webinar participants.
