A musicum is for kids who want to sing! No previous training necessary – just come have fun while making good music! Musical self-confidence and basic vocal technique are taught using the kind of excellent repertoire kids deserve but rarely experience, including classical and folk music from all parts of the world. Each child discovers that his or her voice is an essential part of something bigger and more wonderful than they might have imagined. Choristers will be singing all the way home! For those with some instrumental training, there are opportunities to include playing with our singing.
