Pocket Girls Choir
134 Shara Boulevard Ocean Shores, from 4pm until 5pm.
Term 2: Tuesday 25 April to Tuesday 30 May
This group is for girls age 7 to 12 who really love singing, and want to extend their skills and performance experience. Each week we will learn some fun singing games and exercises which help to develop great pitch, vocal strength and confidence. We will learn some short songs and rounds, and then focus on one or two songs from the musical theatre and classic pop repertoire. There will be a short performance at the end of each term – developing performance skills is an important part of these classes.
This group is offered by myself, through my business Song Dynasty Music. It is not part of the school day or music curriculum.
Many of you know that I have been the music/drama teacher at The Pocket School for the past 7 years, and I have directed kids choirs in Singapore, Blue Mountains and here in the Byron Shire. I also teach at Main Arm Public School.
Please send me an email to sdynastymusic@gmail – or call me on 0438 965 397 if your child is keen.

“Janet’s joyfulness is contagious! Singing in a circle, the body exercises, the expression takes you out of yourself so that you become more courageous, singing can do that and Janet shows us how. She has all these techniques at her fingertips. A skilled and beautiful teacher.”
