Musical Challenges

I spent the weekend teaching.  It seems incredibly difficult for a cast of singers to remain focused when I’m trying to teach solo lines.  They talk, fidget, and completely zone out.  And this happens when the line I’m teaching is only 4 bars long.  Teaching harmony lines also takes a lot of effort as they don’t seem to stick.  I wish that more singers learnt to read music, or that they listened to the recordings of the songs.  Too many people think that singing is just about learning the words and the tune, but that is is only the beginning.

I do know that in the end that the musicals will sound good, but it does take a lot of patience in the beginning.
