  • Several voices 'stick out' and there's no blending in your choir
  • Choir members are unmotivated or give you a hard time

Are you trying to:

My Story

Hi, my name is Dr. Michael Carney and I am a full-time Choir Director, Conductor and Organist.  I have been leading choirs and coaching singers for over 20 years. 

About 12 years ago, I was under a lot of STRESS because my choir program was mediocre at best: I barely had enough singers to do 2-part harmony.  And even if we could pull of 2 parts, the lack of blend made them sound......icky.

I deeply wanted to find answers to improve my choir and save my reputation.  I tried all the regular places: music conferences, magazines, and even YouTube Videos.  Even though I found some new "tricks", I didn't have the right tools and techniques to get my choirs sounding professional while singing in HARMONY.  Plus, I didn't have enough singers to carry the parts...




At the time, I compared myself with this successful director...and it made me feel worthless and stupid.

But, that pain I felt also motivated me to search for answers

The bottom line is… NOT knowing how to grow a choir and get them sounding great feels bad.  It's embarrassing.  It leaves you feeling like you have no power and you think “is it me?”, “am I good enough to do this?”

And on the other hand… KNOWING how to build an awesome choir program feels GREAT.  

*It feels good to get more members in the door…

*it feels good to teach them how to sing in harmony and sound good…

*it feels SO good to have people telling you "I love the music program here" and "the choir sounds better than ever"… 

It just feels good knowing how to get a choir sounding good.  And most important of all, it's WORTH LEARNING.

The reality is: it's not your fault.  Unfortunately, the big publishers try to sell us "easy music to get your choir sounding good" BUT their primary goal is to make $$$ through their publications.  They say that their music will make your choir sound good.  Sadly, that's not true.  That's like saying this piano will make you play better...ya right!

There simply isn't a good, affordable education system that can teach choir directors the skills they need to be successful and feel great about their music program, UNTIL NOW....

"This was the answer to my prayer for guidance. I truly appreciate your direction! I have watched the recruitment section and I can't wait to start my second year this August with more vision about what to do!"

"As a music minister of 40 years, I have found the Choir Essentials program a valuable tool providing fresh and innovative approaches to long-established methods as well as new and contemporary concepts for music ministry in the 21st century.  I highly recommend this program to anyone in church music and academic curriculum.

"I ordered Choir Essentials and it's totally awesome!  I'm glad I jumped right on this.  I can't wait to try out a couple o the suggestions and watch my choir improve."

I'm thoroughly impressed. This is really a unique product and I'm blown away by how professional it is! Wow wow wow.”

"I have no doubt that this video training program will be invaluable to many choir directors.”

"With his knowledge and experience Mike has been a great resource for me as a music director.  Mike's expertise continues to guide me along the way.”

I thought long and hard about how much I should sell this program for.  I really want to create as many successful choirs as possible.  So, you're not going to pay as much as that one conference you might attend and may get a couple useful pointers for the $2,000 you spent!  You won't even pay $1,000 or even $500.  My program will provide an invaluable return for a modest investment.


Why only $297? That's like the cost of a handful of voice lessons or an inexpensive getaway.

I want you to have a thriving church or school music program.  I want you to have extra time to be creative and have your choir sound amazing, without a huge hassle.  I want you to be able to have more time for your family.  If I could go back in time to when I didn't know these methods, I would pay thousands for this information because it saves so much stress and time.

I'm going to be completely honest with you.  My system isn't going to work for everybody at all times.  Sometimes you use the system in a church where there are more people in the choir than in the pews and it won't work.  But, these Choir Essentials have worked wonders for me and I've been able to quickly build several choir programs that sound great.

But I can tell you this, if you don't make your money back several times over, or if you aren't thrilled with this resource for any reason, I will give you a full refund if you ask within 60 days.  No questions asked.  This program isn't for someone who likes to buy courses like this and let them gather dust on the shelf.  It's important to me that you're not someone who rather talk about improving your program than actually doing it.

By the way, if you sign up for Choir Essentials Training Program today, you'll also receive my BONUS MATERIAL section where I've included several training videos that are geared towards saving you massive amounts of time and energy.

I want you to ask yourself, what would it do for you if you could have the tools, the techniques and the know-how to build a great choir and get them sounding incredible?

What would it be worth to you if you knew that you earned the respect from members of your church or school because of your successful music program?

Imagine you invest in this program and three weeks from now you show up to choir practice and....

  • you realize you need more chairs because you got new members
  • the choir members are bubbling with energy and new life
  • you start rehearsal and within minutes teach your choir a new song with 4 parts.  They sound amazing.

You think about where you were just three weeks ago, and where your choir will be one month from now, and one year from now.

You can make the choice not to go in this direction, but your choir will sound the same next year and the year after.  You will continue looking for "easy choir music" in all the same places... or maybe you will read a magazine article but you and I both know that it's not the magazine that will improve your program, it's the skills and techniques that you bring to the table.

Now is the time to TAKE ACTION and improve your choir ... investing in my Choir Essentials Training Program is the best way to do it.

Your Friend,

Michael Carney

About Dr. Michael Carney:  I've been leading church choirs for nearly 20 years.  I was a middle school chorus teacher for 5 years and grew the program from a few singers to 70% of the school (almost 200 singers!).  I took what I learned from that experience and applied it to a new choir director position, where we grew the program from 0 members to 40+ members in very little time.  My techniques have had so much success, I am able to teach others how to get the same success.  I have a Doctorate of Musical Arts Degree in Conducting and I am a fulltime Church Music Director.  Let me help you with the Choir Essentials Program to get you what you need to grow and improve your church or school choir program.
