Minuets: Music & Movement
now offered virtually!
Our newest course for 4-6 year old girls and boys!
The Phoenix Boys Choir's Minuets class is an 8-week pre-choir program for Pre-K, kindergarten and first grade boys and girls. It’s designed for young children with little or no previous musical training. Minuets provides a fun and engaging learning environment to develop a solid foundation in music education for our youngest learners.
Our world-class early childhood music education program helps boys and girls build confidence and grow musically through moving, singing, playing, listening and reading music. Your child will be introduced to music literacy skills and learn beat development. Ms. Mary Price, Phoenix Boys Choir Principal Accompanist and a longtime elementary school music education teacher, will lead the class on a digital platform. At the conclusion of the session, students will participate in a virtual showcase where they will share their learning with their families.
Classes are held on Tuesday evenings from 4:00 - 4:30 p.m. Spring session is March 9 - April 27, 2021. Minuets participants will sing in the Phoenix Boys Choir's May 19, 2021 concert, Voices of Unity. The concert will share the Phoenix Boys Choir’s message of hope for solidarity for all of humanity. Participants will also receive a bonus class on May 18, 2021.
At this time, we the classes will be offered virtually. The cost is $64 (equals $8 per class) for the 8-week session.
"Our 5-year old daughter, Aria, loved Minuets this past season! I watched her go
from a shy singer, to a joyful performer by the end of the eight weeks. The instructor is
warm, engaging, and encouraged her to participate by making the classes fun, inviting,
and age-appropriate. We are still singing some of our favorite tunes and can't wait to
see our friends at the Spring session!” - Andrea Worth, Parent
