Magic Choral Trick #8 Jin Shin Jyutsu holding point

This magic trick doesn’t make your choir’s sound any bigger or brighter – but what it can do for blend is astonishing.

1.Place the left hand lightly on top of the head

2.Index and middle fingers of right hand (Peter Pointer and Toby tall) lightly touch the end of the nose.

3.Wait till you can feel a pulse at the tip of the nose

You’re done – that’s it.

You can test the technique’s effectiveness by having the choir sing one phrase of a song – doing the holding point – then singing the same phrase again.

It’s also so calming that I’ve used it with various singing groups right before the curtain opens.

This one really is magic!

I've been waving my arms in front of choirs now for more than 35 years - and these are descriptions of all the very best things I've learned. I direct a Women's Competitive Barbershop Chorus, a Men's Competitive Barbershop Chorus, a Med School choir, and for a few weeks each year - Big Choir (about 100 voices) - which performs at an annual fundraising concert. Hope at least some of these Choral Magic Tricks will be useful to you - and thanks for reading. Janet
