WHAT IS PREP CLASS?
CCW's PREP CLASS is a program designed to introduce first-time singers (ages 5-9) to the choral experience. PREP sessions focus on singing through movement, play, and the music of many times and many places. This program plants the seeds for a lifelong relationship with music for each child while teaching proper breathing, posture, and basic music reading skills. Classes are high energy and engaging to help children enjoy learning to sing in tune and in a choral setting
PREP classes are repeatable for up to two years per section. Children who enjoy PREP classes are encouraged to audition for CCW’s Treble Chorus when they are ready.
No audition is necessary for PREP Class!
Pre-Choral Experience. Best for children ages 5-7. Meets Mondays, 4:30-5:10pm.
Students are introduced to the basics of choral singing. The focus is on accessing the head tone and matching pitch. They will explore general musical concepts of high and low, fast and slow, and different rhythmic patterns through rhythm games and simple songs. They will also be exposed to following a musical score and some beginning part singing through rounds and partner songs.
Beginning Choral Experience. Best for children ages 7-9. Meets Mondays, 5:15-6:00pm.
Students continue with skills that have been learned in Vocalise. They should have a clear sense of pitch and head tone and can now begin singing in parts, following the score. Students have the opportunity to perform in the spring concert with the Treble Chorus.
