1st year choir directing ~ Several questions!
Date: March 19, 2014
Hello, I recently accepted a job as the choir director at a local middle school. The choir meets afterschool. The program was created in the middle of the year and we're located in a rural area so it's been a constant struggle getting people to show up to practices. I only have around 8 members.
As I said, I have a few questions. PLEASE BE PATIENT WITH ME.
1.) The kids are very very quiet and I am having a hard time getting them to open up their vocals and sing loud. Any suggestions?
2.) As I mentioned in the beginning there is literally only 8 people in the choir, we hope to have more next year. We are a school choir and I dont know what kind of music to provide them for us to practice. Can you give suggestions?
3.) The kids would sound better with harmony and I am afraid I have 2 or 3 "tone deaf" students. Help?
*** Thank you so much in advance!***
