In many high schools, choral students do not receive a thorough, well-rounded musical education. Rehearsals have been for performance sake, not the sake of the musicianship of the student. For this project, I taught a series of lessons using Comprehensive Musicianship Through Performance (CMP) introducing Pablo Casal’s Nigra Sum to my ninth and tenth grade women’s choir. Notes and journal entries were kept while teaching the unit. Following the performance of Nigra Sum at the 2017 Spring Concert, an online questionnaire was given to the singers to measure whether students valued the CMP approach versus the traditional choral teaching model. Results suggest that most students, as well as the educator-researcher, see considerable value in the more holistic approach to teaching choral music that CMP provides.
