WHAT IS PREP CLASS?
CCW's PREP classes introduce first-time singers (ages 5-9) to the choral experience. PREP focuses 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. Children who enjoy PREP classes may audition for CCW’s Treble Chorus when they are ready.
No audition is necessary for PREP Class!
Recommended for children ages 5-9. Meets Tuesdays, 5:00-6:00 p.m.
Students are introduced to the basics of choral singing. The focus is on accessing the head tone and matching pitch. The class 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. Students have the opportunity to perform in the spring concert with the Treble Chorus.
