The Licking Valley Vocal Music program provides opportunities for students in grades 6 through 12 to develop skills needed to sing in both a choral and solo setting. These skills include vocal technique, reading rhythms, reading melody and harmony and developing focused listening. Each year reviews and builds upon the skills learned in the previous year. Any student can begin in choir at any grade level. Previous experience is not required.
