Our research study is concerned with how teaching and learning choir can develop all-round skills for students. LivePBL is Linking Vocal Education with Project Based Learning. Based on cases in Capital Normal University in Beijing, China, this paper reports the research in progress by applying LivePBL framework to enable undergraduates to explore choir in training music teacher students. This paper argues that a good range of research can be seen by demonstrating choir activities that can develop “all-round” skills for the choir activity participants and music performers; however, there does not seem to be much emphasis addressing training students who study music education as a major in a higher education institution. Conceptual framework and case studies are presented in respect of teaching and learning vocal knowledge and performance art techniques, and more critically, the life skill developments at various levels, e.g., in self-esteem, self-confidence self-efficacy, reflective communication, collective-leadership, and consultative-coordination.
