Is there any other music teacher reading this who has any ideas how I can enthuse my (new)choir? We had a 16 strong group in 2007-summer 2009 and then the other teacher who worked along side me retired so we stopped for a bit. I thought to revive it for Christmas would work and while individuals say yes they will come back, they don't turn up. I know there are so many things on offer and I don't blame them for choosing other activities (or to go home on these cold, dark nights). I have said that the music dept (i.e. me!) will do a Christmas concert and had to have the new choir's debut, but with only 5 pupils at the last 2 practices I feel like giving up. Thanks for any suggestions!
