A beginner or more experienced?
Choirs leader are convinced that singing in a choir has a positive effect on the physical development of their singers. 90% of the children and youngsters say that they are able to learn more complex melodies more quickly since singing in a choir and three-quarters of them attribute skills such as a wider vocal reach, greater voice flexibility and the ability to adapt more easily to different tones to the more experienced choir members.
More than one in four of the young singers improve their musical knowledge after joining a choir. They either learn to read musical notes or enhance their existing ability to read notes.
The ability to read musical notes before you are allowed to perform with a choir varies from choir to choir. In the majority of choirs (56.4%) this is not a requirement. Where it is required, it is possible in most cases (83%) to learn how to read notes after you have joined the choir.
