This investigation is an attempt:

  1. To present the outstanding problems and difficulties which are likely to arise in the process of organizing a mixed chorus in the average small four-year high school, and in directing the chorus during its first year.
  2. To analyze these difficulties and to suggest techniques of treating them, based on the experience and recommendations of authorities in the field of choral conducting, and also based on the writer's personal contacts with the field of choral music as a student and as a director.
