Results

You will be emailed about the results the week following your vocal assessment.

What We’re Looking For:

A high degree of motivation: A child who is exceptionally keen will likely make a fine contribution to the choir.

A good musical ear: The singer needs to be able to distinguish and match sung pitches. The ability to read music is an advantage.

A pleasant voice: The director will assess the child’s voice potential in terms of resonance and breath support.

An ability to read language: Children who have difficulty in reading language or have little interest in literature will likely experience limited progress as singers.

Good physical health: Rehearsals, performances, concerts, recordings and tours are very taxing, therefore good health and stamina are necessary.

Self-reliance: Children who lack initiative and self-reliance will experience frustration in this type of choral program.

Social skills: Children need the social skills necessary to enjoy working with and relating to other children, and taking direction from directors.

Long-term commitment: In order to receive the maximum benefit from singing in the choir, your child should plan to be part of the choir for at least a few years. The social, emotional, and musical benefits from singing in a choir will be most evident after a few years of singing.
