Viva Voce! 2016-17

We have music for Children's Choirs! But more than that...

Here's our comprehensive teaching curriculum for children’s choirs, Grades K-2 and 3-6.

We're not going to be a part of the "dumbing-down" of children's choir music!
If your children's choir has been singing air-pudding, maybe it's time you took a new look at your curriculum. (Or better yet, take a look at ours!)

We've been planning this for a few years now, and we found just the person to head up our Viva Voce Project. Carol McClure is the Director of Children's and Youth Music Ministry at First Presbyterian Church in Nashville and has been working with St. James Music Press for several years. This learning plan is based on our commitment to teaching vocal technique, music skills, hymn-knowledge-y, liturgics, and service in a fun, efficient, memorable and rewarding manner for both the choristers and the directors.
