Summer Choral Camp at Fischer Music School

The Fischer Music School will be offering  a 5-day Summer Choral Camp from 18-22 July, 9 a.m. to 12 noon, led by the music school choral instructor, Aleksandra Szczygiel.

The program is for children in grades 3 through 7 and will teach the students about singing and also give them an opportunity to perform a recital.  The group lesson format is perfect for those students who are looking to improve their vocal skills and technique but not feel the pressure of being one on one with an instructor.

The first hour of the program will consist of instruction (warm up exercises, how to sing properly, theory) so studenst will understand the concept of rhythm, melody, structure of the song, and how to develop healthy singing.  For the remainder of the day students will work together on a variety of popular songs from various musical genres.  By singing in four part harmony, students will develop aural skills.  Video clips will also be presented to enhance knowledge.

Students will perform a recital at the end of the program on Friday evening, July 22 at the Essex Town Hall..

No experience is necessary.  Maximum number of students will be 25 and cost will be $125.  Registration is open now at www.essexct.gov (choose the park and recreation link on the right).  For more information contact Park & Rec. Dept at 860-767-4340 ext 110.
