The journey from the first choir rehearsal to the concert can often be unclear, with many rehearsal challenges and obstacles along the way.
The Choir Director Corner Community Membership provides practical resources, collaboration and support to help choir directors save time and frustration, conquer rehearsal challenges and arrive at a successful performance.
Introducing: The Choral Rehearsal Success Path!
The Choral Rehearsal Success Path was created to guide you along the path from preparing for your first rehearsal all the way to a successful performance! Each stage is designed to help you through a different part of the process.
With each step of the Path, the Choir Director Corner Membership provides you with different resources to help you to tackle your biggest teaching challenges!

Here’s what one of our CDC Community members has to say about the membership:
Thank you for offering such wonderful resources! I have felt like giving up for a while now, just feeling stale and hopeless in my job because of so many things, but trying not to let my students know how I’ve felt. Finding your website and videos has come at exactly the right time and has helped me to start getting back on track. Thank you so much!!

Here’s what another member of the CDC Community has to say about the membership:
The courses inside the CDC Community Membership were exactly what I needed. I wanted something comprehensive to walk me through teaching at the high school level. Every course was fantastic because it contained step-by-step instruction on HOW to implement everything I was struggling with: assessment, choral placement, sight singing, rehearsal techniques, great warmups, repertoire, etc.
By using the resources inside the membership, I have gained more confidence and my choirs are really improving. I needed a base of knowledge and practical “how-to’s” to help me get organized and moving forward.
Matt has been like having a personal mentor and coach. I would highly recommend learning from him!

Here’s what another member of the CDC Community has to say about the membership:
As a high school choir director whose school LOVES data, I appreciate the rubrics inside of the membership, as they are more specific than our state rubrics. In addition I really like the repertoire lists, as it is high-quality repertoire I can do with high school ensembles of varying maturity. I’ve been in a rep rut for a few years so this gave me an influx of new ideas!
