As part of our new Vocal Arts Academy, this September we are launching a new chorus for very young singers, (girls and boys aged 4 and 5 years old), called “Caroling Kiddies.” The content of this program will overlap some of the Holiday repertoire of the Caroling Kids (aged 6-8), and the children, if they wish, may join the older children in some of their public performances.
The aim of this chorus is to give children a solid musical foundation in rhythm, pitch, singing and movement, and enable them to experience the joy of singing with others. By engaging in the Caroling Kiddies program, parents will also notice improvements in their child’s ability to concentrate, their language development, posture, breath control and refinement of their gross motor skills. This program is also an excellent foundation for the skills they will need in preschool and beyond.
The class will be taught on a Tuesday afternoon from 3:00 to 3:30pm in Mill Valley by Joanna Dudley, a qualified music teacher with 13 years of experience teaching singing to young children. The children will be provided with a CD of all the songs they are learning so they can sing along at home. No previous experience necessary.
Register before September 1st and the $25 registration fee will be waived.
