Nurture your child’s musicality, social skills and self-confidence with Forest Voices Choir! Forest Voices is a non-auditioned singing circle where kids sing for the love of it. We teach singing for the whole child - embodied singing from the heart.
WHAT YOU GET:
Participation in a vibrant musical community of kids who love to sing
Learn heart-opening songs that center compassion, equity and Earth stewardship.
A full semester of engaging choral instruction with award winning music educator Noe Venable, plus the opportunity to perform in our closing concert for family, friends, and wider community at a beautiful, historic San Francisco venue.
Access to high quality practice recordings of the songs, with parts separated out, for home practice.
Complete lyrics for reference.
Fun musical games and mindset practices for self-connected, empowered vocal expression.
HOW: We meet in the San Francisco Bay Area, in several smaller, separate cohorts who come together for a single shared optional performance at the close of our season together. Individual cohorts are kept intentionally small to foster deeper connection and help prevent overwhelm for sensitive kiddos.
Purchase this listing to try the group for free. Free trials are offered on a space available basis, until a given cohort is sold out. If, knowing this, you feel like you'd like to go ahead and purchase the full season, you can purchase the full session, here.
WHO: Open to kids ages 7 - 11. (Parents of older kids, please note that most who join us are on the young side of that range.)
COVID safety: We meet indoors in a well ventilated space with air purifiers running. Masks are optional.
