Training Chorus

3rd - 5th Grades

The Training Chorus, designed for children in 3rd through 5th grades, marks the initial preparatory level within The Frederick Children’s Chorus to introduce a musicianship component to its membership. At this level, budding musicians delve into the basics of music, mastering the recognition of notes and pitches while also developing their ability to listen to and read musical notation. Consequently, they can harmonize as a cohesive group and perform autonomously as a complete choral ensemble.

The curriculum for this program encompasses a diverse range of songs from various languages, cultures, and historical periods. Emphasis is also placed on fostering performance etiquette, promoting responsibility, encouraging home practice, time management, and nurturing a strong commitment to their musical journey.
