I have been the director of a traditional church choir for over 18 years. Just a couple of years ago my pastor decided to join the choir. I was thrilled to have another male voice. I have since realized that his work as worship leader makes him prone to over sing, not to mention glaring vocal issues which limit his range. My question is how should I go about handling these issues and others which cut into my rehearsal time and take away from the other members? He has a bit of a musical background, having played guitar in the church’s Christian rock band, not to mention singing the liturgy every week.
I don’t usually mention people by name when addressing mistakes in rehearsal, but I have called him out when the same mistake has been made multiple times (he doesn’t mark his score like the rest do). I HAVE been considering a male voice sectional ( there is only him and another bass singer, and myself singing tenor) to work on vocal technique as well as pitch and rhythm. How should something like that be run, should I be able to schedule it? Any opinions and advice are welcome.
