Welcome to Pinecastle Christian Academy Vocal Department.
Elementary students from K3-5th grade are all introduced to music and vocal techniques on a weekly basis. These classes are fun and engaging and teach students how to use their voice as they sing songs that glorify God.
Upper Level Choir Grades 6-12
Middle school and high school choir learn many vocal techniques that enhance the voice in an effort to achieve the greatest potential from each student. We also learn many other aspects of choir that will help the choir as a whole.
One of the most underrated aspects of choir is its ability to function as one. Many times groups are put together with great individual talent but lack the chemistry that is needed to really achieve great things. We will be doing great team building projects and studies so that the choir “team” can understand just how important this really is.
We are going to be doing a great deal of vocal exercises and vocal training to ensure each student leaves this course with a thorough knowledge of what it takes to be a successful vocalist.
Reading and Writing
Students will be encouraged in learning the basics for sight reading and also encouraged to write out some vocal arrangements that we can try out in class.
Students will learn various words commonly used in a choral setting. These words we will study and discuss throughout the course.
