Sorry for the misunderstanding.

Given what you’ve said, I’d start with finding out exactly why they signed up for chorus. If you don’t think they’ll open up in a discussion, then ask them to write a paragraph about why they signed up and what they expected the class to be. Maybe ask them to describe what their ideal chorus class would be like.

I still advocate for letting them see other groups, but I wouldn’t show them professionals. There are lots of middle school video clips on Youtube. Heck, there are even a couple videos of my groups, and your kids wouldn’t have any trouble comparing themselves favorably 🙂

Finally, read Tom Carter’s book. I think you’ll find a lot of ideas there.
