Blog posts, musings, and thoughts on life in general

My new choir did their first performance yesterday - they did brilliantly, and I've been flooded with excited emails saying how much fun they had.

One comment in particular jumped out at me, from a lady who said:

"Having been told when I was at school that I couldn’t join the choir because I was rubbish, it has taken me over 50 years to pluck up the courage to try again!"

I'm full of admiration for this brave lady; her comment reminded me why it's so important to have a nurturing and supportive environment when you are singing - regardless of the age group! I have long believed that the single biggest barrier to effective singing is confidence, and the more I work with people of all ages (but particularly adult community choirs), the more I believe this is true!
