Only during the few times I was working on choral pieces.  Usually I'm listening to the radio (located outside the shower, thank you!).

I may have hummed through my Summer Solo while learning it a few times, too. (I do one solo all summer with the Hollis Band, and a second one in October with them.)

Bardolph's sleep aria from Falstaff perhaps?  Are you a baritone?

Tile showers have really strong resonances that ring after you sing them.  When we stay in a motel I always try to find the most resonant note and tune it up so the shower's 'singing' the  note after I quit.  My wife thinks I'm nuts.

I sometimes sing in the shower. But I prefer singing in the shower at my uncles place. It has a very high ceiling and tiled walls. The Accoustics in there are perfect for makeing anyones singing sound great.

Hey, there's nothing crazy about that! I bet most musicians do the same thing. I love finding that resonant 'sweet spot' in hotel and motel showers when on the road.

I don't like showers. Gimme a nice steamy bubbly bath any day of the week! OK, I know it wastes water, but I don't have a dishwasher, only use the washing machine every two/three weeks, don't have a garden to water, and *never* wash the car, so I think I'm entitled!

In the bath, I usually read and/or listen to the radio. My singing is reserved for the lucky audiences listening to my band.... :-P

I love singing in the shower because your voice is naturally lower when you just wake up. I'm a bass anyway, and when I've just woken up I can get down to      8vb. It seems to fill the whole room, it's such a cool feeling.

S'OK. I worked out what the problem was (the permissions weren't set correctly in this new room) and I've now plugged the leak.

*thinks*

Why is "music room" two words, but "bathroom" one?

The english language is prejudiced against music. there.

But, Singing in the shower is fun. And It also helps me learn my music. If I can memorize the rhythm, then notes come that much easier.
