HERE IS HOW THE MAGIC HAPPEN WITH WILLAN’S CHOIR CLASSES
Every child is born with a creativity. We nurture children’s creativity and take joy in their musical thoughts through a course of fun activities.
Students learn fundamentals of how to sing and learn to express their musical thoughts.
Through practices and performances, children gain strong bonds and relationships with other young musicians. We sing together to have a wonderful musical experience.
We understand that children learn best when they have fun. Our choir classes are designed for children and they all enjoy every step of learning experience.
The choral music experience is considered as one of the most efficient and productive methods to awaken and develop the musical talent in a child. Throughout the course of the classes, students will learn vocal technique, music theory and score reading through fun activities, games, and singing practices.A choir is not just a musical experience, but the most exciting and full of surprises trip!
