What We Do
The singers will learn basic musicianship skills and vocal technique. They will be exposed to many genres of music, cultures, languages, and composers. Most importantly, we wish to instill a love and passion for singing and musical excellence.
Music is vital to the development of young minds, their imagination, and freedom to emote their feelings. Music gives young readers another way to understand poetry, stories, and history. Music touches the heart and soul as they sing the song’s melody and rhythms, developing a deeper understanding of how they feel themselves and how others may feel.
Children derive great joy and satisfaction from singing. Music cheers the spirit, lightens the heart, and causes the mind to focus and the body to relax!
