About Prep Chorus

SFGC_72619_22.jpg

Students are introduced to unison choral music and beginning vocal technique. Repertoire selection encompasses a variety of genres, including classical, folk, sacred, secular, and multicultural. Singers will take first steps in reading from a choral octavo, increasing their ability to read both words and music. Students build listening and memory skills through weekly practice, and develop confidence and stage presence in preparation for their final performance.

Following the methodology of educator Zoltan Kodály, folk music, games, and dances foster the enjoyment of developing musical skills, including reading, writing, improvising, interpreting, and describing music. Students will use their voices, bodies, and rhythm instruments to make music, experience music, and internalize music. Musical concepts include loud/soft, fast/slow, high/low, beat, simple rhythmic values, pentatonic solfege, and simple meter.

Prep 1 is for girls age 4 and Prep 2 is for girls age 5. For girls ages 6 and up, please visit our auditions page to learn more about our Chorus School programs and other upcoming events.

Prep Classes are held in San Francisco & the East Bay (Emeryville). See schedule below.
