children's choir

HELLO SONGBIRDS!

No one in the world owns a more unique instrument than their voice. Not one person’s voice is the same as another, and every voice is as beautiful as the next! 88Keys’ Children’s Choir (for ages 5 and up) will bring together our community’s unique and beautiful voices for our very first ensemble voice program. This program will run bi-weekly on Friday evenings from September through until June, and is open to every child who loves to sing!

WHY JOIN 88KEYS’ CHILDREN’S CHOIR?

Students joining us for our choir program – lead by current Yamaha instructor and professional vocalist, Ms. Alondra – will learn how to:
  • use their voices in a healthy manner. Like any other instrument, your voice needs care and attention to make sure that it stays in great shape. Taking part in a children’s choir program lead by a professional instructor will teach you how to care for your voice and produce a beautiful sound without harming your vocal chords.
  • sing in pitch. Learning proper technique from an instructor helps to exercise your voice, expand your vocal range, and make it easier to hit those notes that you felt like you couldn’t before!
  • use proper singing technique. Using proper breathing technique and enunciating words are important for strengthening your voice and enhancing your performance skills.
  • sing with other students in ensemble. Learning how to sing with others allows you to gain musical experience and train your ear in a way that you would not be able to do in an individual setting. Learning with the support of peers also helps to build confidence!
