Let’s sing together! The joy of song is alive, well and safe at Myriad.

Is your household filled with your child’s full-throated, hearty singing voice? Are you sensing that your enthusiastic singer could benefit from some expert coaching, learning healthy practices which will then protect their voice long-term?  Or perhaps you have a shy child or teen who loves to sing and would thrive under the tutelage of a caring voice teacher, finding their confidence at long-last. At Myriad, little singers thrive in our Mini Singers classes, and pre-teens / teens gain skills, poise and stage-presence in our Glee and Advanced Glee classes. In this inclusive environment, multiple musical styles are explored, and movement makes everything more fun! Truly, we are so excited to sing together safely with you. Let’s help our children stay connected through music during these times!

Preparing for an audition? Singing with our Glee program gives you a step up!

Are you auditioning for a role in a school production or community theater event? Well then, our teachers are here to help. Markedly, we’ve helped hundreds of singers over the years prepare for their auditions, giving them the tools to choose the right music, increase their range, sing on pitch, and protect their voice from vocal fatigue. Consequently, Myriad’s mini-singers and glee students gain experience, knowledge, confidence and skills to shine at auditions and choral events. Additionally, our Glee classes feature popular contemporary musical theater hits, giving singers the experience they need to thrive in productions elsewhere too!

All the benefits of a private voice lesson, with double the fun!

Vocal technique plus collaborative music making in multiple styles. Our Singers love these classes! Mini Singers & Glee Singers are now accepting new members. We are excited about introducing the joy of singing to your child, in this fun, collaborative setting. Let’s help our children stay connected through music during these times! The joy of song is alive at Myriad!

Level 1: Mini Singers Ages 5-7

These young singers gain confidence and improved self-esteem through song. Our singers learn how to read music too! For this age group, our skilled Choral Directors alternate seated singing activities with movement activities, creating a dynamic learning environment. We know how important it is to provide an interactive, engaging singing classroom. Consequently, focus and excitement and teamwork is always at the forefront. The sound, polish, and memorization skills these little ones attain throughout the year is remarkable to witness and hear. Markedly, you will be amazed! We are excited about introducing the joy of singing to your child, in this fun, collaborative setting. Let’s help our children stay connected through music during these times!

Level 2: Glee Singers Ages 7-9

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 Glee Gold Singers to be featured, developing their personal vocal and performing style. New singers are invited to audition for these groups.

Currently, for safety reasons, students who are new to Myriad Music School, ages 10-13, are invited to direct-enroll for Glee Gold, by-passing our traditional audition process this year.

These enthusiastic singers are:

  • Learning all of the same skills as a private voice lesson, in a fun collaborative setting. This is the most motivating way to start voice lessons.
  • Excited about singing and LOVE classes
  • Developing stage presence and performance poise
  • Learning to use their voices in a healthful and natural way, creating a clear tone
  • Singing a rich variety of musical styles, including multicultural songs in other languages
  • Creating music as team players in a nurturing, dynamic environment
  • Developing rhythmic, sight-singing / ear training skills through music theory games
  • Understanding how to follow a conductor

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.

Winter and Spring Performances

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.
