"Choir class with Ms. Miyuki is a lot of fun!
She goes above and beyond to encourage kids to participate and sing well. My kids love the musical pieces Ms. Miyuki selects. They are age/season appropriate and very enjoyable. Thank you for giving kids the choir experience (via online classes/ recitals) during these times!" G.R.
"My daughter loves singing with APAM choir.
She looks forward to the lessons every week.
Ms. Miyuki is always encouraging. She pays attention to each singer and offers very specific instructions to my daughter.
My daughter develops her singing skills
and teamwork spirit with the choir.
It’s a lot of fun, too." Ms. Li
We offer two levels of groups.
All singers will have fun and be challenged, depending on their music readiness and experiences.
Our choir director will help you to choose your singer’s group through an interview prior to the first class.
ANDANTE: Everyone welcome, no music experience needed. You will learn a beginning level repertoire in unison or simple two-part harmony.
PRESTO: For a singer who has moderate music fundamental skills and knowledge such as time signatures, scales, solfège syllables, notes and rests. Private singing lessons preferred but not necessarily. You will learn two- or three-part harmony repertoire.
All new singers should have an interview with the director prior to the Zoom orientation on Sept. 18.
