SINGING CHOIR

 

The children's choir is BACUS initiative to help children find their voices and discover the joy of making music in groups. Vocal exercises and part singing teaches them to listen and develop a sense for musical harmony.

 

These classes also incorporate theory and history of music.

 

How does singing benefit my child?

 

BACUS believes that singing in a choir is strongly correlated with qualities that are associated with success throughout life. Students who sing in choirs have academic success and valuable life skills. Multiple skills increase after a student joins choir.

 

There is an improvement in self-confidence, self-discipline and memory skills

Singing participation can enhance numerous aspects of a student's social development.

 

Students learn to be team players and participate better in-group activities.

 

Singing also helps emotional expression and emotional management.

 

What is expected from children who are part of the Singing Tree?

 

Each choir meets once a week for an hour-and-a-half. The lessons are structured into 45 minutes of theory and 45 minutes of voice exercises and singing. BACUS expects children to attend regularly, be disciplined, and arrive to class on time. The Society also expects that children will come to class and for additional rehearsals prior to a concert or performance.
