More Boys Wanted in Upstate New York
Robinson, Matt
Teaching Music, v18 n1 p14 Aug 2010
In spite of the popularity of TV shows like "American Idol" and "Glee," it can still be hard to convince boys that singing is cool. Therefore, choir directors who would like more boys to join their groups have their work cut out for them. Erin Belanger, music teacher at Stockbridge Valley central School in Munnsville, New York is a case in point. Although she has managed to significantly raise male enrollment for her school's many choruses in recent years, it's been an uphill battle. This article discusses how Belanger's concerted effort to recruit male chorus members is slowly paying off and explains how she made it possible.
