Young Singers
Ages 6-9

Explore your love of singing and make some friends! In our educational vocal ensemble, students develop important musical and vocal skills as they learn to sing as a group. Students will learn rhythm and note-reading, finding and matching pitch, proper breathing and singing techniques, and ear-training skills. Students with lesson experience will get a chance to see how to apply those skills to singing, while students new to music will get a great first musical experience. The class will culminate in a performance at the group recital.

No previous music lesson experience required.
