Mousy, quiet girls
Date: May 13, 2014
I'm wondering what to do with the painfully introverted (high school) girls who simply refuse to make any sounds above a mezzo piano (if I'm lucky). They seem to gravitate together and almost conspire not to make any sound. I've really tried to make choir an emotionally safe place for them, I don't ever single them out, I warm the choir up at a good volume level, and I've tried moving them around - sometimes next to strong singers, sometimes with each other, etc. But I just haven't been able to break through, and I'm wondering if there are any successful strategies for getting these girls to sing out.
