Choir

Bethany Whitman

  • Choir: 6th, 7th, and 8th Grade

This is a performance based class.  Choir is for students interested in learning about and singing music.  Students learn how to read music, improve their singing voice, and grow as both individuals and ensemble members to perform choral music from various styles and time periods.  This class is designed to get students adapted to singing in the choral setting.  Students will learn how to be independent singers and will get an introduction to music theory.  Each choir student is required to participate in four concerts each year, at the end of every nine weeks.  Students are also provided an opportunity to audition for Honor Choirs outside of MJMS.    NOTE:  This is a year-long class, which may prohibit the student from taking other exploratory classes due to scheduling.
