Each Wednesday During Term

Choir Profile

Magic Voices Children's Choir began as a natural progression from the pre-instrumental classes offered at Music Works Magic. Many children wish to continue the interactive singing experience, enjoying the social aspect of making music with like minded friends.

The children range in age from 6-12 yrs. We meet for 1 hour once per week, singing, playing games, dancing and learning a wonderful varied repertoire. We have begun to learn basic literacy through a Kodaly based approach. (See www.kodaly.org.au for more information on Kodaly teaching.) We continue to explore the many skills that are essential for participating in a choir while discovering wonderful new music.

We are happy to have new members. We believe that all children can learn to sing provided they have the right experiences. We aim to provide the very best musical experiences. Children sing predominantly a range of folk and traditional music from around the world well as songs composed for children's choirs.

Who Can Join

We believe that all children can learn to sing. Even children with hearing implants have come to join us and learn to sing. It has been reported that 98% of the population can learn to sing reasonably in tune, given the right experiences and that's what we are about... providing children with those special experiences! We explore the entire range of our voices and create a unique learning atmosphere in which our children can grow.

This choir is for children at primary school.

Our rehearsals

We rehearse every Wednesday afternoon for 1 hour. In rehearsals we learn how to read the music we sing and how to hear it even before we sound it out loud!

Sessions have several focuses, broken up by interactive dances and games.

We ask for your full commitment so that the choir has continuity and time to develop as a group.
