Music for Children & Youth

Choir ACADEMY

The Christ Church Choir Academy is a fun faith-based choral music education program, with an emphasis on the development of life skills and belonging to a diverse community.

Choristers study music reading, vocal skills, and performance etiquette for concerts and worship services, based on the Royal School of Church Music (RSCM) training program, led by our professional music staff.

The Choir Academy is a great way for children to explore their artistic abilities and discover the joys of teamwork and leadership!
