For this age group, our skilled Choral Directors alternate seated singing activities with movement activities. Consequently, focus and excitement is always at the forefront. The sound, polish, and memorization skills these little ones attain throughout the year is remarkable to witness and hear consequently you will be amazed!

Glee Singers continue their vocal foundations with quality selections chosen by our choral conductors. Similarly, these singers also explore Musical Theater songs, plus classic and current pop / folk / rock hits. In addition, fun, accessible choreography and solo singing opportunities are all part of our performance format. Consequently, these performers really bond with each other while gaining performance confidence through music they truly love.
Level 3: Glee Gold Singers Ages 10-13
Our Level 3 Gold Singers are tackling challenging fun pop, classical and musical theater selections. Gold is a smaller, specialized singing ensemble for our experienced Glee Singers who are moving up to the next level of performance and individual vocal style. Harmonization is an important component of this ensemble. These singers work together with their Directors selecting current, appropriate music that is exciting to them, while refining vocal skills that really unify their sound, achieving balance and blend. Above all, flexible solo and duet opportunities allow Advanced Glee Singers to be featured, developing their personal vocal and performing style. New singers are invited to audition for these groups.

Why take a Mini-Singers or Glee class over a private lesson when a child is 10 or younger?
Starting private voice lessons at too young of an age is too strenuous for young vocal cords. Vocal cords are too under developed at this age for private voice exercises. Above all, young singers need to be exposed to a vocal ensemble experience to gain important ear-training, vocal balance and harmonization skills. As a result, young singers making music music together learn how to blend their voice with others. The young singer shares the responsibility of projecting their voice. This protects the child from over-singing. Over-singing, or “belting” is a harmful habit that can take years to reverse. Therefore, getting the right kind of instruction when one is young ensures smoother progress when the singer enters puberty and the vocal cords begin growing.
Mini Singers Level 1 perform in-house at Myriad 2-3 times per year, for family and loved ones. Glee and Glee Gold Levels 2 & 3 singers participate at an off-site venue, on a bigger stage. This is a collaborative ‘team’ activity. Consequently, every singer is an important member of the whole team effort.
