Why is it that when I’m alone I can sing as high as an opera diva but in front of my choir teacher I have no range whatsoever
things that go through my head during choir practice every week:
- that’s wrong
- that’s also wrong
- STOP MAKING THE SAME MISTAKE TWICE
- can we move on
- why are we singing in syllables IT’S JUST LATIN
- S T O P
- who even brings cookies with dried cherries like
- STOP MORE BETTER
- this pianist is so Irish that he reeks of Guinness and rebellion
- FCUKING CHROMATICS THO
- literally no
When directors or choreographers play favorites instead of basing their judgments on actual talent.
Best part of choir: sight reading in solfege as a group. For my choir that’s 60-odd high schoolers chanting DO FA TI LA SO RI RE ME RA DI SI DO FI LI TI DO etc. in tempo.
I always feel like we’re either summoning Satan or exorcising a demon.
Things I do when I am home alone:
- hold a single note for as long as I possibly can
- Take Nicki Minaj lyrics and sing them in an operatic tone
- Sing as high as I can
- Sing as low as I can
- Harmonize with every song I listen to
