Choral Music courses provide opportunities for students to develop their musical potential and aesthetic understanding through singing in a choral ensemble. These courses seek to give students in grades 6 through 12 experiences in the study and performance of a diverse repertoire of music.

The standards of learning are organized into sequential and developmental levels:

Elementary School - Beginning

Grades 6th – 8th Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced

Grades 9th – 12th Beginning, Intermediate, Advanced, and Mastery

Since students in Georgia may be introduced to the choral ensemble experience at varying grade levels, the use of sequential and developmental levels allows for consistency and instructional flexibility.

Study of vocal/choral music includes the cultivation of a beautiful singing tone, aesthetic understanding, the ability to read music with fluency, the polishing of performance skills, responsible rehearsal habits, and the value of collaboration.

Students will have opportunities for self-expression through the spontaneity of improvisation and the creative process of composition. Students will develop listening skills and the ability to analyze and critique music and music performances. Students will relate their musical experiences to historical and cultural aspects of choral repertoire.

The ultimate goal of the choral experience is the development of the individual both musically and personally for the lifelong pursuit and enjoyment of music.
