Choral music education provides students the opportunity to not only gain musical skills but also a life-long appreciation for music. Students develop individual skills and strategies that will help them be successful in all academic areas throughout their lives. In Dysart, the vocal curriculum is designed to teach students the fundamentals of singing, reading music, breath support, diction, vowel formation, ear-training, and afford students many performance opportunities. Our programs allow for student growth as advanced performance groups offer an environment in which ear-training, music theory, and vocal technique are challenged.
