Time to Sing!
The Los Angeles Children’s Chorus (LACC) is currently enrolling children ages six and seven in its “First Experiences in Singing” Level I class, which introduces children to the excitement of singing and music.
Classes are held Wednesdays from January 24 to March 14, 2018, from 4:15 pm to 5 pm, at Pasadena Presbyterian Church. Geared for children with no previous musical training, the eight-week class is intentionally small in size to provide optimum instruction.
“First Experiences in Singing enables children to explore their voices, which are their own unique instruments,” says LACC Artistic Director Anne Tomlinson.
First Experiences in Singing includes general music and rhythmic concepts and teaches bel canto singing, the vocal style using the head voice for which LACC is acclaimed, with all activities adhering to LACC’s supportive and nurturing tradition of excellence, focusing on the health of the voice. It also incorporates different learning modalities to engage visual, auditory and kinetic learners while presenting the fundamentals of singing at the appropriate developmental stage to prepare children to audition for LACC’s upper-level choirs.
Children who complete First Experiences in Singing Level I are eligible to continue in Level II, then Level III classes, which are non-performing groups. Graduates of Level III are eligible to audition for LACC’s Preparatory Choir.
The cost of the eight-week First Experiences in Singing class is $300. Pasadena Presbyterian Church is located at 585 E. Colorado Boulevard, Pasadena, CA, 91101. For more information or to enroll, please call (626) 793-4231 or visit www.lachildrenschorus.org.
