New this fall! The Music Academy offers the Academy Youth Chorale on Saturday mornings! Our voices are our natural instruments. We use them to speak, laugh, cry, and sing. Academy Youth Chorale (AYC) gives young singers the experience of discovering and fine tuning their own natural instruments.
In weekly sessions, students grow in confidence as they learn to hear musical intervals and how to shape a phrase and sustain a tone through natural breathing techniques. Academy Youth Chorale members can apply what they learn as singers to the study of any other chosen instrument.
AYC promotes individual self-esteem through fun, stimulating teamwork and setting realistic goals. In Academy Youth Chorale, young musicians discover the enjoyment of working together to create a delightful artistic experience for themselves and their listeners.
Academy Youth Chorale classes meet Saturday mornings during the school year and is open to community students 8 - 12 years of age. No audition is required. Chorale instructors are Libby and Jesse Parker.
