I am delighted to begin enrollment for another season: 2012-2013 Singing Time voice classes and the new HONOR CHOIR!
Singing Time is a fun and comprehensive vocal training class for boys and girls ages 4 through 11; it's like a choir and voice lesson all rolled in to one fun package! In Singing Time, we focus on building confidence, exploring the unique and individual talents of each singer and developing strong and healthy voices in young singers. We work on developing good musicianship, reading music, using healthy vocal technique while exploring a wide variety of styles of music in a nurturing and supportive environment. Singing Time is for anyone who loves to sing. This class is for those who feel they have a special talent and it is equally for those who wish to develop skills in singing and aren't terribly confident yet. It is a myth that you are either born a gifted singer or "can't carry a tune in a bucket" and that is your fate in life. The truth is: singing is a skill that EVERYONE can learn. Everyone deserves to enjoy music and to celebrate their own talents with confidence. In this class all students learn to appreciate their own and other's gifts.
Honor Choir is an auditioned ensemble for gifted middle school and high school singers. In Honor Choir we will combine a love of singing with a goal of excellence; we will build a sense of community and teamwork with our peers; and we will reach out to the community in service. Honor Choir students will give an annual concert and they will give special performances throughout the year in our community and surrounding areas, by invitation. Honor Choir students will develop outstanding vocal technique, learn to sightread music, sing in harmony, perform vocal repertoire in English as well as other languages, sing a variety of styles of literature that represent musical cultures around the world as well as our own, develop a strong work-ethic and sense of discipline, and much more.
Tuition for any of these groups if $54 a month. To register for Honor Choir, please send a $15 once-per-year materials fee. To register for Singing Time, please send $25 deposit (will be applied toward September tuition). **Everyone who enrolls in a Singing Time or Honor Choir class on or before August 15th receives $40 discount on 2012-2013 tuition and will receive a special monthly tuition rate of $50 from September 2012 through June 2013.
