Training Division

Our Prelude I and II choruses teach young singers the fundamentals of singing in a group, including beginning note reading, vocal production, and performance. We use Kodaly and Orff based teaching methods that are proven techniques for engaging young children in music learning and movement. No previous experience is needed. Students are involved in age-appropriate music and activities designed to challenge their singing and listening skills, and ignite their imaginations to explore how the elements of music can help them express themselves.

In our Allegro classes, children are engaged more actively in learning and singing in preparation for their eventual entrance into our very energetic Intermezzo Choir.

At the end of the semester, each Prelude I, Prelude II and Allegro choir holds a class recital for family and friends.
