The focus of Melody Makers is to foster the joy of singing in a group. Children learn folk songs and melodies from around the world, including simple harmonies, movements and small instruments for accompaniment. We will share what we have learned with a concert at the end of the session! We at Melody Makers believe that ALL children are musical!
Melody Makers is not your typical children’s chorus. We don’t rehearse with risers or chairs, as we are moving around much of the time, or playing the drums or instruments. We value the process of making music over the product and this can be seen in our rehearsal style. Our concert is a time for the children to share the music that we have been interacting with all session, and the audience is invited to sing along on most every song.
