Children's Choir at La Habra Music Center
The children’s choir is specifically designed for children ages 6-12. The choir program teaches vocal basics in a fun group session. The choir is taught by one of our voice teachers with a university degree in music specializing in voice. Students are split into a junior choir for ages 6-7 and a senior choir for ages 8-12. Students in the junior choir are often learning how to read words at school and a bit more focus is spent on the actual lyrics. Students in the senior choir are taught the more complex harmony parts. Students in each group learn proper warm-up and breathing exercises, and an introduction to harmony. Splitting the weekly rehearsals into age appropriate sessions, makes a smaller, more intimate group where each student can get more personalized attention. When it comes time for performance, the junior and senior choirs perform together as one larger group. The choir works on a wide range of musical styles from contemporary Disney songs to Christmas classics and historical folk songs. Performances happen at Christmas and at year end. Choir rehearsals are 30 minutes, one time per week.
