A note from Mrs. Stallings to all students and parents:
Wow! I was truly blessed this week to hear so many wonderful singing voices from such fine young people. I admire each of you for having the courage to try out, and I hope and pray that you will strive to develop your singing voice and musicality whether or not you are in Academy Juniors.
I encourage all students who will not be participating in the group this year to come talk to me! I would love to meet with you to discuss skills and techniques you can use to strengthen and improve your talents. Each of you has a special and unique gift. Although it may not have been the right fit for this specific group this year, I can say with confidence that each of you should continue singing and pursuing your passion for music!
Our choral program focuses on performing a variety of musical styles including both traditional and contemporary repertoire. Emphasis is given to learning proper vocal technique including tone quality, breath control, posture, blending, and diction within a choral setting. Music theory, sight-reading, and ear training are also important components to the development of overall choral musicianship.
