Session Description

Students in the WILDMusic beginner vocal session participate in fun and exciting classes focusing on aural, rhythm, and music literacy skills using a variety of instructional methods (including Orff, Kodály, and Dalcroze Eurhythmics) as well as choral rehearsals. Our singers learn a diverse repertoire of songs ranging from the classical canon to American folk music as they develop basic music literacy, solo performance skills, and ensemble performance skills guided by experienced and dedicated instructors. Students will also participate in 2 WILDArts classes. WILDArts classes may include movement, yoga, visual arts, theatre arts, and/or creative writing.

Students participating in this session will:

  • Be introduced to music symbols and terms
  • Sing a variety of music in unison and 2-part harmony
  • Use body movement to learn concepts of rhythm, structure, and musical expression
