“Voices Only” will introduce children to a cappella singing, incorporating rounds, improvisation, folk songs, and pop songs. Material will be chosen based on the capabilities of the group, to enable all to participate and enjoy. With an emphasis on experiential music-making over music theory, teaching may use a combination of oral tradition (learning by ear), lyric sheets, and sheet music. The last class will feature a “showcase” for invited friends/family, to demonstrate what we learned to do together.
