Leading from the Inside Out

Tips for Directors and Student Leaders of
Choral Ensembles

Composer, conductor, educator Dr. Z. Randall Stroope offers advice on choral leadership principles based on years of successful university teaching and international guest conducting.

This course presents 6 ‘Ps’ of leadership, principles for both choral conductors and student leaders.  It reflects Dr. Stroope’s high standards and commitment to student leadership and shared responsibilities.  Suggesting that conductors and student leaders begin in an “inner circle”, Dr. Stroope introduces a thoughtful variety of motivating factors that inspire choirs to pursue musical excellence, bringing the “outer circle” into the center for shared ownership.  This presentation includes testimonials from former students now running their own programs, giving the presentation varied voices but unified commitment to the 6 ‘Ps’ formulated by Dr. Stroope.
