Getting boys to join chorus!
I teach chorus to students in grades 5-8. Every year, I struggle with getting boys to join chorus. Between changing voices and peer pressure, not many are brave enough to try! I make sure to include music that boys would enjoy singing (this year one group is singing "A Tribute to Queen"), but it is not enough. I had run an after school Men's Chorus for male students and staff members, but I only got two students and two teachers to join...the two students are already in my chorus anyway!
Does anyone have any great tricks for convincing boys to join (and stick with) a middle school chorus???
