    Hello! I'd really appreciate some advice if anyone has anything to offer? Thanks!

    So I'm 16 and i'm in my 6th year of my school's all girls choir. I've been in every single concert and do my absolute best to learn music and sing as well as I can. I am very concious of the fact I'm not a strong singer compared to the other sixth form girls, but I've never been flagged up as a concern before.
    Today, my teacher said to me "You're unlikely to get you're place on stage - we'd like our sixth form girls to be the more dancey, show off types. You know, for the younger ones."
    I'm a bit quieter than the other girls, and i'm partially sighted too, which makes me worry about whether i see all of my teachers' movements so i'm always intensely focussed on trying to get it right.
    I'm obviously not going to argue about her decision, but i am very upset about it. I really do have such a passion for being in a choir, and I absolutely love and admire Gareth Malone. Can anyone advise me on what to do now? I'm so disheartened and I don't understand why it has happened this yesr - I have never known anyone be removed as a sixth former!

    I don't think it sonds like a decision that has been set in stone - you just have to show her that you can be more dancey, show off-y, which to me sounds cringy but anyway. Okay, it may be difficult to your partial-sightedness but maybe you can do something about that like memorise the routines and/or copy the girls around you? and in terms of singing take deep breaths and make more of an effort to be 'louder' (without sounding like a football crowd) to stand out more
