Includes 10 HI-RES 8.5"x11" printable posters for your classroom or rehearsal space!
With over 2.1K social media shares, my article "Your Choir Sucks because You Suck" has started a new wave of positivity in the choral world. These 10 ideas have been shared with middle and high school choir students, as well as college and university choral departments across the country. Teachers have even made their own posters.
Now, the host of the Choir Ninja podcast brings you the OFFICIAL high resolution, printable, full-color posters for use on your choir room bulletin board or walls.
Encourage someone at every meeting: Say something nice. Kindness is contagious.
Come prepared: Practice, or at least look over your music, before rehearsal. You’ll feel awesome and less anxious.
If you make a mistake, smile and own it: Have a sense of humor, especially if it was a stupid mistake. You’re human. These things happen.
Dress to impress. Look your best for rehearsal and performance. If you look your best, you’ll be more confident and will take more pride in your performance at rehearsal or concerts.
Wrap up conversations at least an hour before rehearsal begins. It’s unfair to yourself to bring “social baggage” into your choir time. You'll be present and have more fun.
Unless you’re the only on-call cardiac surgeon in your city, turn your phone off: Off. Turn it all the way off. If you’re worried someone needs to get a hold of you, they don’t. They can wait.
Come to every rehearsal and performance early: You’ll be able to socialize with the other cool, responsible people. (They’re the ones you want to get to know anyway.)
Get to know your fellow choir members: Hang out outside of choir.
You'll benefit from a positive peer group of like-minded friends. BONUS quote. "You're the average of the five people you spend the most time with." - Jim Rohn
Invite a friend to choir rehearsal or a concert: Most people don’t come to choir on their own. Look for a like-minded peer and ask him/her to come. Everyone can be in Choir Nation. We need audience members too!
Talk about choir with your friends: Tell people what you’re working on and SPEAK PASSIONATELY about it. If you think you’ll be judged by your friend for talking about choir, he’s probably not your friend, so find new ones then talk about choir.
