As yet, however, little has been said about encouraging young boys to sing. Girl power and laddism have together conspired to make singing a very uncool thing for boys.
The way round the problem is for boys' choirs, in addition to mixed children's choirs, to be set up. This will make singing a much more acceptable activity for the young male.
