Inman Chorus

Welcome to the Inman Middle School Choral Department! My ultimate goal during your child’s choral experience is the development of the child both musically and personally for the lifelong pursuit and enjoyment of music. We will focus on the importance of correct vocal technique, listening skills, sight-singing, performance skills, responsible rehearsal habits, and the value of collaboration. I have high expectations of my students and I promise to provide a stimulating and nurturing learning environment.

Objectives

  • Expand musical opportunities and experiences for students
  • Improve individual student ability and success
  • Increase participation in the choral program
  • Increase community involvement with the choral program
