If you are really wondering about your choir teacher’s methods… why don’t you find out for yourself? See if there is anything different or out of the ordinary in the teaching style or presentation of the material that you can glean from. There is always more room to improve, and sometimes worthy teaching ideas can be sitting in your own backyard! Talk to your choir teacher.. make a lunch date, talk in the hall, or observe their class if you get a chance. Any good program can always be expanded and made better. This could be a chance to make improvements you wouldn’t have thought of otherwise.
Also, low numbers does not have to mean low quality. I’ve know bands that were your size, and were able to win competitions and awards over bands twice and three times their size. Make the most of what you have, and don’t underestimate your students. There is more potential than meets the eye, if you’re willing to look for it.
