A quick glass of cola before rehearsals, because I have been shouting my head off all day!
The most important don’ts according to choir leaders
- Smoking (64.9%)
- Shouting (63.8%)
- Arguing (38.1%)
Smoking and shouting are the top two don’ts of two-thirds of the choir leaders. One in three think that arguing, forced whispering and too much talking should also be avoided.
In addition to the top three, choir leaders are also concerned about too many fizzy drinks, too much coffee and voice imitations. Informing colleagues and young singers about these matters and emphasizing their potentially negative effects is essential!
