CHOIR PROGRAM

CAMA offers three choir classes for students ranging in age 5 - 19:  Melody & Harmony, Joyful Sound & Jubilee Singers.

 

Choir classes will be provided music and/or lyrics that must be returned at the end of the semester. There will be a music fee charge to replace any sheet music not returned.

 Melody & Harmony 

Melody & Harmony music class age range is 5 - 9 year olds.

These children love to sing and learn together. They prepare for In Harmony Beginning Band by learning the recorder, and for Joyful Sound as they learn to sing simple, two-part songs. Rhythm games are included to teach them simple music theory such as the staff, notes, and other things. Older CAMA students, known as Music Helpers, in the CAMA Leadership Program assist this class by sitting with the students and keep distractions to a minimum. 

5-7 year old students, (Melody Makers) learn music theory and their songs, while the 8-9 year old students, (Happy Harmony) learn recorder and staff reading.

8-9 year old students need to have a recorder and recorder book. Both items can be purchased at CAMA's front desk. Recorders are made by Yamaha, and are $8 a piece. Recorder books used by CAMA are "Recorder Express" and can be bought from CAMA for $10.

 

All choirs perform without music, so students will be responsible for having their music memorized.
