John Bertalot's Four best-selling Books on Choirtraining:
the first two available online,
the second two available from KEVIN MAYHEW

Choirmasters who read these books, or attended Bertalot's workshops around the world, wrote:

1. "Your workshop gave me the tools I needed to stretch my children further than I ever dreamed possible."

 

2. "I learned more from you in that short week than at college and working in the church music field for years. You've made choirtraining an adventure to try rather than a feat to fear."

 

3. From Dr Ronald Arnatt, past President of the American Guild of Organists, and former head of Church Music at Westminster Choir College, Princeton. NJ.

"You are, without doubt, one of the finest teachers I have ever had the pleasure of knowing."

 

4. From the Director of Music, the Drakensberg Boys' Choir of South Africa:

 "You, John, are the best choirtrainer that I know. You worked tremendously hard with the boys for three days and brought them up to a standard we've not known yet. No wonder you are in such demand throughout the choral world."

 These articles (below) share my immediately practical thoughts on 'how we can ALL do it'!
