Yep, same thing here. My daughter is in high school and has sung solos since the age of 4 and professionally trained since the age of 6. Nothing. Not even solo parts in chorus--the ones who do--not good, it is painful to watch them. Just baffles me. Heck, the kid could read music before entering kindergarten and the chorus teacher didn't place her in advanced chorus--she is in there with kids who don't know and it is frustrating to her, as she wants to be more challenged. I have come close several times to confronting this lady, but I fight it, because I don't want to do more harm--she is only a sophomore. Once she graduates and gets into a college, I just might cut loose--it'll make me feel better--ha! Right now, she is composing songs, and wrote a book--this is a good way to utilize those same creative talents, but in a different way--I'm all for it!
