Children’s Choir – NEW!
Teach music and singing in school in such a way that is… a joy for the pupil; instill a thirst for finer music in him (or her), a thirst which will last for lifetime.
I believe that singing is a gift that lasts a lifetime and that through music we can explore the world’s cultures and experiences. The choir program is designed to help children develop proper singing techniques in a fun setting. We will also be exploring other fundamental musical concepts such as rhythm, form and tone through movement (dance) and body percussion.
The main philosophy is derived from the Orff Music Program, where proper singing is considered a priority.
The Children’s Choir is open to students ages 3 – 17. Centered around the development of children’s musical skills, students will be engaged in singing, movement, theory, ear training and ensemble playing.
Choir members will be:
- Building confidence by nurturing their love of singing in a group environment
- Exploring beautiful music from around the world
- Learning the techniques of healthy singing
- Focusing on orchestral excerpts being performed by the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra
