Youth Chorus

Grades: 4th-8th

Days: Sunday

Class Time: 03:00 PM- 05:00 PM

+ More Info

Calling all youth singers! The HCA is seeking to gather youths to form a performance chorus. Choral members will meet once a week on Sunday afternoons for 1 -2 hours depending on their grade.  

The songs will incorporate many different genres including pop, Broadway, classical and more! Perfect for students who love to sing and want to improve their vocal skills. Instructor: Monica Spencer. Some rehearsals will be split by age groups and eventually combine all ages as it gets closer to the performance.  Students who register will have an assessment done to place them in the most appropriate vocal part.  15 classes.

As this program grows, the chorus will be given opportunities to perform at public events.

Monica Spencer:

Having earned  Master’s and Bachelor’s Degrees in Music Education (Vocal Performance) from Howard University in Washington, D.C., Ms. Spencer has served on the voice faculty of the Trinity College (Trinity Washington University), the Ottley Music Studio, the Sewell Conservatory of Music, the former District of Columbia Youth Chorale Program, the Oscar Micheaux Family Theater Company Program and the Suitland High School Visual and Performing Arts Program where she established an opera workshop.  She has also taught on the music faculty of Bellingham High School, Bellingham Memorial Middle School and is a frequent substitute music teacher in the Hopkinton Public Schools.

 

With over two decades of working with high school and college singers, she has a great deal of experience with the care and training of developing voices, paying attention to vocal health in students of all levels and ages.  Learning to sing is a slow, patient process.  It is a learned skill and those with sufficient motivation and patience will improve their performance considerably.  Ms. Spencer’s teaching approach is based on a vocal technique pyramid with Posture as the foundation upon which Breathing , Tone Production, Diction and Resonance are built.

 

She is a resident of Hopkinton, MA., and a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing, the American Choral Directors Association, and the National Association for Music Educators.
