Magic Choral Trick #40 Jerry Lewis

Very simple trick to make your choir’s sound brighter if it’s dull – or if it’s placed a bit far back in the mouth.

Have the choir sing a section of the song (for comparison later)

Sing the same section the way Jerry Lewis would sing it. Yep – nasty nasty nasty. The younger choir members may have to look him up on youtube before attempting this.

Then sing the same section for a third time in what will feel like the usual, relaxed way.

The sound will be brighter and more exciting, (without any of Jerry’s tension in the mouth or throat).
