Singing in a choir is very helpful in improving your voice, your knowledge of music, and your performance skills. It can also determine your access to the vocal range. You just have to follow up with the director’s instructions and listen to the group of singers around you. Now, you have to use a proper set of breathing and composition of posture techniques to get the benefit from your choir experience. Here is the full guide for the choir Sydney join:
- Determine the part of Choir you want to sing
There are four basic parts of the music choir. These basic parts are Soprano (C4 to C6), plus Alto (G3 to F5), and also Tenor (D3 to A4), and even the Bass (E2 to E4). For the first step, you have to test out your vocal range by singing along with the piano to see which part is most comfortable. There are a classical set of voice types that are further hence categorized in Mezzo Soprano or the Contralto. In case you are joining as a beginners’ choir then the director will help you in determining which part you can sing.
- Select the Choir
You have to select the kind of choir that would best suit you according to your age, your experience level, your music preference, and the time you are able to commit. The World music groups, community choirs, and church choirs are very informal and they don’t usually require auditions. Contemporary/classical choirs, barbershop choirs, gospel choirs, and a cappella groups are very advanced and they require auditions to join them. The children’s choir is a great option for young singers whose voices do not blend very well with the adult voices. The directors of these choirs are very engaging so that the kids can learn as well as have some fun.
- Perform Good in Audition
The choirs for which you have to give auditions first, you have to sing the part that is given to you in the audition paper. If the director allows you to select your own piece then you should choose the part you are most comfortable with. For a successful audition, you have to practice hard.
- Pay Membership fee
There are many choirs that require some sort of fee as they have to pay the expenses for music sheets, uniforms and travels (if any). The fees are different for different choirs. Some choirs ask more than the others as their expenses are more. after you have paid the membership fee, you are an official choir member.
