Gospel/Pop Singer in my choir
Date: April 1, 2014
I have a small chorus club at a local college with students who just want to sing. They select the music with a final commentary from me. Their tastes include Mozart, Thompson, movie thems, musicals and presently, a Beach Boys quartet for guys. It is a wonderful group of students and I have done well so far with the many who join and do not read or carry a tune. I work with them individually as well. Just today a new girl decided she liked the sound and asked to join. We are one month away from our first performance so I wasn't sure, but the president said yes. It is an encouraging, inclusive club. This girl has a lovely voice, but her experience is gospel. I like the music, but I am still uncertain about how to teach her...she has asked for lessons...I need HELP because I want to do the right thing by her...I will focus on how to use her breath, but that isn't enough. Suggestions????????
