Help! I'm Leading by Example (And I'm Not a Very Good One)

by Chris Beatty

A choir director recently called me and said, “Help! I’m leading by example and I’m not a very good one!”

We all do it.
We all lead by example. It’s just the way things work. Our children learn how to speak by imitating those who raise them. That can be good, or that can be bad. Our singers are watching and listening to our vocal and musical guidance and that, also, can be good . . . or bad, depending on what we are doing.
