Re: Band and Choir
I did one section of choir while student teaching (different state).
Baring diction, it's not so different from teaching band. Mouth shape, air support, intonation and matching pitch, balance and phrasing...
True, but none of us signed on to teach choir. Yes we are technically qualified to teach it, but I don't think many of us go into the profession to sing.
Change your attitude. Singing and playing/teaching an instrument go hand in hand
Got stuck doing three periods of Choir next year in addition to Band. Any advice as to how I can survive 'screaming band' and not let it hurt my band classes.
