“A choir director I had when I was in school used to say, ‘When you’re singing, I want you to make your mistakes loud. I don’t want you to mumble through a passage because you’re worried about being heard making a mistake. Make‘em loud so I can hear you and we know what needs to be worked on.’”
Coaching Point: What a positive, useful approach to mistakes!
“[Then] we know what needs to be worked on [so that you can improve and get it right].”
The focus is on the improvement, not the mistake.
Are you willing to make loud mistakes?
