Primi Passi

New for 2016-17!

Primi Passi ("first steps"- pree-mee pa-see) is a non-auditioned choral music experience for boys and girls in the 3rd grade.  It is a wonderful way for children to explore their interest in music and singing, and the potential for other opportunities in the New Jersey Youth Chorus.

The children will meet in Chatham on Tuesdays, from 4:30 – 5:30 PM.  There will be an 8-week, Level I class for 3rd graders in the Fall, and an 8-week Level II class in the Spring.   A Level I class will also be offered in the Spring for 2nd graders and new 3rd graders.  Each lesson is devoted to joyful music-making and active learning about basic choral technique and music reading skills through song, musical games and folk dance.  The songs are specially selected for this age group.
