The last stage before...
This is the last stage before The Hague’s Children’s Choir.
By now the children are good at sight reading music. As well as all the effort they have put in, their personal motivation and talent, they will also have completed the first book of the “Jongleren” sight reading syllabus (*).
(*) Part Two of the syllabus offers them new challenges and the repertoire becomes harder. Songs with two or three voice parts are no exception in Talent Class 2.
The students in Talent Class 2 are real aspiring choir members. They co-create, their stage presentation skills are well developed and their musical experience is already quite profound!
That moment when a student comes forward with a good idea of their own, when the group contributes their ideas and suggestions about an arrangement or positioning: that is what I do this for!
This is that moment when the children learn melodies in
the minor key. They always think this is so beautiful!
It sounds so sad, but also “real”.
