The Phoenix Boys Choir is excited to offer our newest course for 4-6 year old girls and boys!
Minuets is a world-class early childhood music education program offered by the Grammy Award-Winning Phoenix Boys Choir. Boys and Girls ages 4-6 will develop their singing voices with Miss Emily while dancing, playing instruments, and making new friends. Your child will be introduced to music theory, music history, and stage performance over the span of our 8-week session, or feel free to drop in for only a few classes! At the end of the 8-week session your child will take part in a public showcase
performance where you can get pictures and videos of your star singer. The Minuets program serves as a strong foundation for participation in professional community choirs, most of which start at age 7, including the Phoenix Boys Choir and the Arizona Girl Choir.
Classes take place on Tuesday evenings from 5:15-6:00 p.m.
Spring session will be January 28 - March 17, 2020.
Below is the link to register for this program. The cost is $96 ($12 per class) for the 8-week session, which you will be asked to submit at the first class. Please note that if you pay in full at the first class, your cost for the 8-week course will be $80 ($10 per class).
Classes will be held at the Phoenix Boys Choir Building located at 1131 E. Missouri Ave., Phoenix, AZ 85014.
"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. Ms. Emily 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
