Play

In this episode, we look at the skill of being a professional choir leader. Our choirs sing for enjoyment and we love being choir leaders, but that doesn’t mean that we’re not professional in everything we do.

    Thanks Victoria and Christine,
    You are right no one understands what goes into leading a community choir other than other leader. I too like the post performance e- mail and may start to send a brief congratulations and specific feedback to individuals and parts. A text could be personal but i am not looking to give myself more routines. I really need to introduce and provide rehearsal tracks so they are there for the people who are keen to practice. Thank you for your 14 tips.

      Hi Jenny,
      Thanks for your message, glad to hear you found the podcast useful. You’re right it’s all about balance, you don’t want to introduce extra tasks which take more time but some things like rehearsal tracks are so worthwhile in terms of how they help your choir with their learning.

    Hello Victoria and Christine, thanks for your 14 tips, I hadn’t thought of the post rehearsal e-mail, so I might incorporate that one!
