Choir Rules and Expectations

In order to have a quality ensemble, it will be necessary for certain rules and expectations to be established.  Our goal is to grow not only as musicians, but also as Christian young people. Choir rules are as follows:

  1. Enter and leave with a good attitude.
  2. Bring your music and folder to every rehearsal and concert. Lost/defaced music will be charged to your school account.
  3. Respect for the directors and each member of the choir is expected at all times.
  4. Active participation and singing to the best of your ability in all rehearsals and performances is a MUST. 

**If you cannot be present for a performance, the director must be notified in writing two weeks in advance, and will be excused on a case-by-case basis.

Music Classes at Grace

Students at Grace in our PreK-6th grade participate in general music classes twice a week. These activity-based clases  incorporate singing, dancing, and playing instruments.  Even our youngest students play unpitched percussion, Orff xylophones and metalophones, use scarves, hoola hoops, Boomwhackers and chimes. By using a collaborative approach with classroom teachers, students can reinforce concepts from math, language, history, religion, and literature. 

4th and 5th graders participate in Recorder Karate, earning belts for their recorders as they advance in their skills in reading music and playing.  Our 6th grade students continue to grow in music reading by learning to play the ukulele.

Students also particiapte in multiple performances throughout the year, including 7th and 8th grade handbell choir and a vocal choir, festival competitions, Christmas programs, and serve in the community by singing at nursing homes and the airport.
