Listen: Highlight to Tweet: CHOIR NEWS! Find Your Forte podcast w/ @ryanmguth will now be Choir Ninja podcast

Show Notes:

  • Choir Ninja aims to be a solutions-oriented podcast, just like it’s host.
  • Predictability encourages habit which makes for more successful choral directors.
  • FOMO (Fear of missing out)
  • A stronger Choir Nation
