Beth Philemon

Choir Baton is a podcast designed to engage people in stories, ideas, and inspiration stemming from their life and choir. Join your host, Beth Philemon, as she interviews singers, teacher conductors, instrumentalists, composers, and community members. What is so special about a group of people joining together with their voices? What is a choir? How are choirs unique in comparison to other areas of our lives? Why do people sing and what defines a good singer? Together we’ll ask questions and more, seek understanding, and share insight from our experiences in life and in choir.

  • 78 - 78. I want you to do less

    Burnout is real. In this episode, I am encouraging you to do less. There is always more we can do as choral musicians and directors. But in order to be able to continue doing what we do, we need to cut down on overloading ourselves. 

    If you’re interested but not quite sure - download one of our most popular resources from the CBTM last year on building the all encompassing syllabus - even if you’ve already started the school year, this is a great resource to help you think through what you’ve missed from this year  or how you could improve your syllabus for the next semester or school year. Get the short video lesson and accompanying PDFs in your inbox today via the link in the show notes.

  • 77 - 77. Choir and ______ with Jenna Corley


    Jenna and discuss the importance of having "choir and ____." As choir teachers, we can get caught up in our work and it become the only thing we do. However, we all have many gifts and abilities. We talk about some different ways to incorporate those in school or outside of the classroom.

    Hey Choir Baton Community, the window to join the Choir Baton Teaching Membership has been extended until Tuesday, September 7th. The Choir Baton Teaching Membership is an online resource for choir teachers to access curated information to help you be successful and feel supported throughout the school year. As a choir teacher under quote “normal” circumstances, the need for support and resources is huge. But in the uncertainty of this year, the Choir Baton Teaching Membership is critical. From now until December you have access to the entire CBTM content from the 2020-2021 school year. These are lessons on instilling choral musicianship into your classroom whether in person, online, or hybrid and you can also get an overview of the method by checking out a recent Choir Baton Podcast Episode - number 75 where I walk through fellow choir teacher and my friend, Benny Dominguez in the process.  And new in the 2021 school year are weekly releases on a hack, lesson, assessment, and choir builder. 


    If you’re interested but not quite sure - download one of our most popular resources from the CBTM last year on building the all encompassing syllabus - even if you’ve already started the school year, this is a great resource to help you think through what you’ve missed from this year  or how you could improve your syllabus for the next semester or school year.

  • 76 - 76. Achievement is the Growth with Jessica Grant

    Jessica Grant and I discuss common themes that I think most, if not all, music teachers can relate to. Amongst other topics we discuss the feeling of belonging and that you are enough and how we can communicate these things to ourselves as well as our students. We also discuss what it means to measure achievement by growth rather than specific goals.

    You can find Jessica on Instagram @highafternoonti and buy her book on
    F FlatorAmazon.

  • 74 - 74. Lessons in Leadership: Reallocating your Baskets

    I had three profound conversations about leadership over the past week and I couldn't not share them with the Choir Baton community. I think we are all familiar with the problem of taking on too many projects and staying busy, as teachers or as...
