ENCORE Singing and Music (Ages 6 and Up)

The Encore singing program is designed to teach children the basic singing techniques like scales, proper breathing, and pitch. They start with warm up exercises that protect the voice while working to expand the range of both the chest voice and falsetto or head voice. The kids practice proper breathing and diction and learn  solfeggio, a standard music education method used to teach pitch and sight singing. There is also a strong emphasis on ear training, an often overlooked part of the learning process that is essential to developing their sense of pitch, which in turn allows them to detect and sing in harmony.

 

Kids are also taught the fundamentals of performance, including stage presence, movement, proper microphone technique, and dynamics. This is all done in a fun environment with other kids their own age, often using popular, current music that they are already familiar with.

 

During the year, Encore offers several opportunities for live performance, including our Christmas Show, and of course our

Encore also offers private singing and music lessons for guitar, bass, drums, and piano.

renowned year end recital. In addition, certain singing and music students are selected to participate in the ‘Find Your Voice’ show, a live musical performance that is also recorded. In the past, the Encore singing program, (formerly called Glee) has made music videos and recorded in professional recording studios. See the projects featured below.

The ‘Encore Ensemble program is designed to give select music/singing students a chance to perform musical arrangements in a live show,. It is intended to give the student the experience of rehearsing with live musicians and preparing for a performance in which they are featured. It can also include opportunities to record those songs using professional recording equipment. Qualifying students are placed with other students of the same skill level and learn how to put songs together in a group environment, including vocal harmony, instrumental arrangements, proper dynamics, and more.

The Encore Glee Beatles Project introduced the kids to the music of the Beatles.  They also  learned about the band's overall influence and contributions to the music business. It was a very large project  that included not only all the kids in the Glee program, from ages six to seventeen, but many of Encore’s senior dancers.  Everyone took part in the documentary, and in the creation of three music videos associated with the project.

ENCORE ENSEMBLE

The ‘Making Your Move’ project was the first one of its kind at Encore.  The senior glee class learned the classic song ‘Your Move’, by Yes, with all its intricate vocal parts. After extensive rehearsal, they headed to a professional recording studio to record their parts. Afterward, they shot a music video of the song, and participated in a documentary of the entire project.
