In the 2019-20 school year, our focus shifted because of the young ages of our enrollees. We did a full semester in the fall, and a ¾ semester until the COVID-19 shut-down in mid-March.
Using the First Steps in Music curriculum created by Dr. John Feierabend, which has always been the backbone of our training choir program, we added a segment on preliminary choral learning. This hybrid was enthusiastically received by our young singers. After the sudden cessation of lessons, one recorded video was sent out to the singers as a closing class for the term.
At the present time, there are no plans for a fall 2020 session. Instead, there is a video series in development for ages 4-8, using the First Steps in Music curriculum. The summer session, Summer Fun, has completed one cycle and is about to begin a second cohort. The fall video series will be released in October.
