My grade 8 son is very involved with chorus, though more of a workhorse than a kid with naturally good pipes. (Meaning this won't be a career for him.) Next year, he wants to do all-chorus electives. At first I was going to say no way, that he needed at least one other something-else for some diversity. But I'm starting to lean towards saying yes to this. He already knows many of the kids. He already knows and loves the chorus director and does an outside of school chorus with him. If we push him a bit higher on honors in core classes, these electives will serve as a no-brainer comfort place for him. But, do you push for diverse electives? And what about going forward? He is definitely showing little or no interest in what he might want to do in college.32 replies
