Find Your Voice
Students who are shy can become confident. Students who are quiet can find bravery. Students who lack ability can have fun learning how to improve. We encourage all of our students to be good listeners, show respect to others, become more confident as singers, and find their voice.
The choir department takes a few field trips each year. We enjoy attending the Ball State University Preview Show, doing community outreach activities, supporting our high school program at show competitions, and performing at the elementary schools for recruitment purposes. Effort is made to place these activities on the schedule at the beginning of the school year in August, but there may be times when events are added or dates are changed closer to the event.
Although much is learned about vocal health, vocal technique, and producing quality vocal sound based on proper vowels, diction, and expression, many students may benefit from additional training. We recommend students and their parents contact Pendleton Music Academy for information regarding private voice lessons.
