How do you keep developing in an ensemble with no formal leadership? We have many thoughts and experience on this topic, both when it comes to evolving musically as a group but also from an organisational point of view. We have collected some of the topics below.

  • Prioritising which issues to approach
  • Rehearsal methods
  • Enhancing mutual listening
  • Encouraging shared responsibility

  • Exploring ranges of dynamics, timbres

  • Techniques for addressing intonation issues

  • Singer awareness of microphones and sound-board functions
 

Perhaps some of these topics sounds familiar and interesting to you? If so please get in touch and we can have a dialogue about how we could help in your context.
