The Suzuki philosophy uses listening, imitation, repetition, and close parent involvement to help children to learn to play a musical instrument as if it were their native tongue.
For high school students and adults – Learn about the elements that go into making music without written music, understand how certain scales, keys, and chords will determine which notes to use more often and learn about riffs, motives, bass lines, beats and grooves.
This is a choir for the average person who wants to sing in a choir. We will meet once a week to learn accessible, beautiful, and fun music for a Spring Concert. Repertoire will include folk songs, oldies pop, movie music, Broadway tunes, etc. There is no requirement to read music or audition. You will be asked to sing for the conductor to determine your choral part. Singers should be dedicated to the time commitment and have the ability to match pitch. Come prepared to sing, laugh, and enjoy fellowship with others!
Focus on performance and audition techniques and receive feedback from the instructor and other students. Improve performance abilities and cultivate the ability to provide feedback.
