07 March 2017 • Castlemaine Children's Choir

The choir has been an enriching experience for my daughter. She loves learning new songs and comes home still singing them. I think she is learning valuable skills in vocal production, rhythm, listening, working as a team and performing - all in a fun and un-pressured environment. I also love that she is being exposed to a range of music styles and cultures. It's a treat to hear the choir perform their work and the quality of teaching is evident in the sound that is produced within a few weeks. Sally
