Teaching A Cappella for Social Change with Lisa Forkish

In this course, you’ll learn how to successfully lead and direct your a cappella group, all under the umbrella of advancing social justice and eliminating cultural bias. You will learn how to craft a mission statement, choose repertoire, maximize your rehearsal time, prepare for competition, and most importantly, create a safe and loving place for your group members. Each lesson comes with assignments to practice and refine your directing skills using the same model as Lisa.
