Choirs & Vocal Ensembles
We believe the optimal age to start private voice lessons is 12-14 year old, after voices have changed. However, we recognize that children love to sing! It’s important to learn proper technique and vocal health at a young age. They are never too young to learn proper technique and how to care for their voice. For instance, excessive screaming will at some point damage vocal chords.
For those willing to wait for private lessons, but want to sing and learn, we have established choirs to do just this.
Have a little one who loves to sing? Give them a good foundation now. In Crescendo Choir these littles will begin learning vocal technique, musicality, learn basic note reading, and singing with a group. They will also be playing musical and theatre games to begin expanding their imagination, preparing them for theatre. All activities and music is centered around the way the age learns - through play.
Crescendo Choir will perform in the Christmas and end of year recitals.
4 years old – 2nd grade
Thursdays: 5:00 PM
Building on the concepts from Crescendo Choir, students will continue to learn vocal technique and note reading. They will begin to apply the games used in Crescendo Choir to real life theatre and choir applications. Acting skills are also honed with games, and learning performing skills that help the student connect with the audience, be expressive, tell a story, and overcome stage fright.
