At this time, we plan to host our Prep Chorus online in Spring 2021, as we believe this is the best way to keep our choristers and staff safe.
We have created an innovative Online Learning Program that utilizes technology to keep our choristers engaged and advancing in their musical studies! Please know that we will continue to closely monitor the health situation and will act in accordance with recommendations by the SF and CA Department of Health.
Prep Chorus Registration is now open!
You may register at the two links below. Registration will remain open through January 31, 2021
About Prep Chorus
Uplifting and empowering girls for a lifetime of success through transformative music education
The Prep Chorus provides young singers ages 4-7 the opportunity to develop their voices and musicianship in an exciting, positive, age-appropriate atmosphere.
No audition is necessary for young singers to join Prep Chorus.
Singers are introduced to unison choral music and beginning vocal technique. Repertoire selection encompasses a variety of genres, including classical, folk, sacred, secular, and multicultural. Singers will take first steps in reading from a choral octavo, increasing their ability to read both words and music. Students build listening and memory skills through weekly 45-minute classes, and develop confidence and stage presence in preparation for their final performance.
Following the methodology of educator Zoltan Kodály, folk music, games, and dances foster the enjoyment of developing musical skills, including reading, writing, improvising, interpreting, and describing music. Students will use their voices, bodies, and rhythm instruments to make music, experience music, and internalize music. Musical concepts include loud/soft, fast/slow, high/low, beat, simple rhythmic values, pentatonic solfege, and simple meter.
