Jim Daus Hjernøe is a full professor of Rhythmic Choir Conducting at the Royal Academy of Music in Denmark (RAMA). Jim heads up the RAMA Vocal Center, which is recognised internationally as the leading European centre for rhythmic choir conducting education. Since 2002 his focus has been on improvisational vocal art, developing the innovative Vocal Painting (VOPA) technique, which forms part of his revolutionary methodology, “The Intelligent Choir”. The Intelligent Choir methodology sprung from Jim’s musical philosophy: to train vocal leaders to inspire their singers to take initiative, and through co-creation, share responsibility in the musical process.
