Benefits for Choir Leaders
Here are some of the game-changing benefits Choir Player can offer choir masters.
Sourcing songs and arrangements for choirs
The Choir Player library includes over 350 songs and more are added every week. The choir
arrangements and backing tracks are all done for you. All recordings are made and owned by Choir
Player and buying the tracks gives you all the rights you need for rehearsal and performance.
The Player is dynamic and can use variants of SATB to suit your choir. An arrangement could work just with Soprano and Alto singers and you could include Tenor and Bass in the backing track to add weight at the lower end.
Whilst arrangements are generally SATB, some are SSAA (which tend to suit women-only choirs) but these can be adapted to SATB with the AAs down an octave for the Tenors and Basses.
Distributing music to your choir legally
Once your choir members have downloaded your chosen songs you won’t have to duplicate CDs or
produce –1 mixes. And there will be no need to copy lyric sheets which you often need permission
Every choir member can have access to every part of the song and on-screen lyrics.
Choir Player has all the licensing sorted with PRS so there is no need for illegal CD duplication.

Making choir rehearsals easy
There are many ways to amplify the music coming from your phone or tablet. Either plug the phone in to a PA or speaker, or alternately use bluetooth to connect. This means you can walk around your choir with your phone in your hand and without any trailing wires.
You will then be able to use Choir Player in many ways including
- Instantly jump to any Section of the song
- Loop and repeat any Section of the song
- If you are short of say, Basses – add a little of the Bass vocals to the mix

You can either buy songs individually or sign up for a low cost monthly subscription so all your members have the app and can use it for practising at home.
