Greetings Choral Directors,
My name is James Pecar and I am the choir director at Chippewa Valley High School in Clinton Township, MI. The choir teachers in our district are gathering some data regarding accompanists in the high school and middle school classrooms. We would like to propose the possibility of our district helping us fund our accompanists. What we need from you is for you to send us a reply to let us know if you have an accompanist (full time/part time/hourly etc. ) and a brief resume of your program—we would like to really show the benefit of having an accompanist in the classroom. We are then asking that you tell us how the accompanist is funded. If you could do this for us, we would greatly appreciate it! We would love as much data as possible as we present our case to the board.
Thank you so much,
The Chippewa Valley Schools Choral Directors
