Curriculum & Ensembles

Curriculum

The music education curriculum is designed to take the young singer from his/her first introduction to the art of choral singing through a full course of study.

The curriculum is divided into a carefully structured sequence of three levels designed to develop skill, stamina, and discipline in keeping with each singer’s maturity and vocal development.

A director is assigned exclusively to each ensemble level. From beginning to most advanced, the ensembles are Training Chorus, Chorale and MasterSingers.
