Default Re: Singing Tips

The renowned Harry Bulow, a composer and music theory professor once asked his class in earnest why in the world J.S. Bach used the same melodies in so many chorales, simply reharmonizing the lower parts. He suggested that perhaps Bach just liked those particular melodies. A quick-witted music student remarked "Either that, or he just had really stupid sopranos!"

Overcome the stereotype, sopranos and basses. Don't let the ability to easily hear your part become a crutch - improve your sight-reading skills whenever you are able.
