Music resource

My presidency and I attended the General auxiliary training in SLC the other day. It was amazing. I left with many impressions and plans for future efforts. But it also made me miss being the chorister. There was a segment focused specifically on music that touched my heart in many ways. How important singing time is!!! And how powerful these songs are! I felt renewed in my testimony of the message contained in primary songs.

This training meeting can be a valuable resource for choristers! What i loved was the simplicity in teaching music. Sometimes we (or at least i did) put a huge emphasis on artsy crafty things for singing time yet this training reminded me of the power of simplicity. The methods shown were simple, non stressful, and BENEFICIAL! Here's a link to the general auxiliary training. Maybe you'll find it inspirational and helpful in your singing time preparations. Happy Singing!!!

Gone with the wind....

Here one day...gone the next. Like the wind.....I feel like i am still new to the chorister calling...and yet, i have been released. I was just starting to get the hang of it and even felt somewhat comfortable (therein lies the problem...never get comfortable!) ;) Anyway, i was called as the new primary president so i am lucky enough to still be in primary and hopefully i can post ideas on here occasionally. We have a fabulous new chorister and i am anxious to watch the children's love for singing continue to grow.

Thank you for sharing your amazing ideas!! I am in awe at the talent, the ingenuity, the wisdom and the inspiration that is out there. I have been fortified by you and I have loved being a part of the "chorister blog family!!
