This is turning into a series of “Choir Lessons From My 2-Year-Old.” Last week was “Remember me?” and this week is a lesson I heard this morning… “Sing it wouder!”
We’re working on a couple things with Abe: his “L” consonant, and his singing volume. We’re singing as a family with all the little kids in a couple weeks, and we are trying to get him to sing out! He knows the song we are singing, but sometimes he is in his own little world. We are working on him singing for others—sing out! He likes when WE sing out louder, too. It’s a little game of ours.
We can ALL learn something from that. At times (last week, for example), you might feel like you have nothing more to give. Or, you might just feel a little down in the dumps. Or, you might not be thinking about the song very deeply. Or, you might not be thinking of singing to others, and you are merely… singing.
One thing I’ll say… “Sing it wouder!”
At times, dynamics are lacking. In my opinion, it is not necessarily about singing louder, but about thinking while you sing (not just you, but ME too!). Concentrate on the message. Let the message mean something to you. Communicate that message.
Thinking changes everything. Sing it wouder!
