The Children’s Choir meets every each week at 6.40pm with Senior (8-11yrs) attending on a Wednesday and Juniors (6-8yrs) on a Thursday. These session take place up in our music school on the top floor of Insole Court.
The choir is for children from 6 years of age. No audition is required. Similarly, no previous musical or choir experience is necessary – just a love of singing. The choir explores a diverse range of styles from popular classical via jazz, gospel, rock and musical theatre. The choir is led by Jessica Ruth Morris who has a wealth of experience working with professional and amateur singers . )You can read her biog here)
Many of our choristers also attend small singing groups (usually of around four children) working towards Trinity Exams. These sessions are enormously popular with students, much cheaper than one to one lessons and the majority of our students have achieved Distinctions (the highest grade) since we introduced these exams two years ago.
Whilst the children will be engaged and absorbed by the music we learn, they will also be develop a strong basic singing techniques with a focus on good posture and breathing. In addition, we always work from music and will receive lots of guidance in the basics of sight singing.
There will be regular and exciting opportunities for choir members to perform. However we are mindful that parents have busy lives and will keep these performance opportunities convenient for parents in terms of duration and within the Cardiff area.
Children wishing to develop their singing further will have the opportunity to take singing exams working in small exam groups (additional cost). These will be starting in the Spring of 2018 and are not compulsory.
