Q. If multiple of conductors have lessons, would the music consistency be lost?
A. Some may feel so, but considering that there is no single answer to music, having multiple viewpoints should contribute musicality. Final decision is on directors (conducting) hands.
Q. How much does it cost monthly and for concerts?
A. It depends on the number of members, slightly cheaper than the average choir fees (student concession available) plus concert installment fees per month. As for scores and voice training are separate, however, full cooperation with the publisher, reasonable prices for some scores. Voice training fee may vary depending on the number of participants, but much economical than personal voice training.
