It is perfectly possible for young people to enjoy making music in a competitive environment (The Izbicki Report, EDUCATION, 21 October). The hundreds of young singers who participate at every stage of the biennial Sainsbury's Choir of the Year competition derive as much pleasure from the experience of collective music-making as from the competitive high of being recognised as winners.

Moreover, each choir comes away with a constructive assessment from a panel of choral experts, to stimulate further improvement and indeed enjoyment.
