Schola Cantorum

SCHOLA CANTORUM – Singing School (preK through high school)

In all levels of music, we seek to train up and equip the students to worship the Triune God with joyful and thankful hearts.  The goal is musical literacy so that we may worship skillfully, in the language of worship that God has given us.

The curriculum for our students is designed to prepare children to become musical in three ways:

  • “Tune-ful" – have songs in their heads and learn to coordinate their voices to sing those tunes
  • “Beat-ful" – feel the pulse of the music and how that pulse is organized.
  • “Art-ful" – respond appropriately to the music–emotionally, physically and spiritually.

 

All Schola Cantorum classes meet on Wednesday afternoons.

First Semester: Sept. 5 – Dec. 5, 2018 (no class on Oct. 3 & 10;  Nov. 21).

Second Semester: Jan. 16 – May 1, 2019 (no class on February 27 & March 6)

TUITION  FEE : $120 (covers both semesters)
