In the Vivace Choir, children have the advantage of starting young and progressing through a developmental music program which provides children with a solid foundation in vocal techniques, aural training, music literacy, and musicianship. The Vivace program caters for children of lower primary ages and also provides continuation from the Let’s Make Music Preschool Program.
The Vivace program is delivered in a developmentally appropriate format and learning is made fun through the use of games and activities that promote active participation.
In the Vivace Choir, your child will be exposed to a wide variety of quality music through two types of repertoire: a ‘performance’ repertoire and a ‘teaching’ repertoire. The teaching repertoire is made up of very short and simple songs, often reinforced through games and activities. These songs form part of the Kodály methodology and enable children to develop their voice, pitch matching skills, and music literacy / sight reading skills. Concepts are reinforced through many different activities over a period of time. This repetition is vital to ensure children have a solid understanding of each concept before moving on.
The Vivace Choir performs once a term for family and friends at our in-house concerts. They also have opportunities to share with older choristers, benefiting from positive vocal role models and immersion in harmonies and advanced part-singing.
There are no auditions for entry into the Vivace Choir. The group size is kept small to allow individual attention, therefore places are limited and a waiting list may apply. Please book early to secure your place in this program.
