MY DAUGHTER IS A CHOIR MEMBER OF THE DETROIT CHILDREN'S CHOIR UNDER THE DIRECTION OF MS. SCHOCH. SINCE JOINING THE CHOIR MY DAUGHTER HAS DEVELOPED HER VOICE, SHE IS LEARNING MANY NEW SONGS, AND TO TAKE HER VOICE TO HIGHER PITCHES. MY DAUGHTER HAS ALSO DEVELOPED MORE SELF ESTEEM, AND HAS COME OUT OF HER SHYNESS.
I LOVE THE CHILDREN'S CHOIR, MY DAUGHTER LOVES THE CHILDREN'S CHOIR AND WOULD NOT JOIN ANY OTHER CHOIR. MS. SCHOCH HAS PATIENCE AND A PASSION FOR THE KIDS SHE WORKS WITH.
I AM GLAD SHE IS WILLING TO GIVE OF HER TIME TO THE KIDS OF DETROIT.

DCC has made a great impact on my son Cameron (DCC member). When auditions were held about a year ago Cameron was dead set against everything (becoming a member). Cam is a child that doesn't want to do much of anything outside of home other than going to church and playing drums.

Well, being a DCC member Cameron has experienced the wonders of all different types of music through voice and song. He's made a few good friends and enjoys seeing each choir member at every rehearsal.

Mrs. Schoch (Choir Director) is so gentle and patient with each of her choir members. Her true passion for teaching and her love of music shines as a bright light through the eyes, ears and hearts of everyone who is Blessed to be apart of this wonderful organization and all who are fortunate to experience the wonders of her music.

Role: Professional with expertise in this field

I recently sang in a choral concert in which the DCC children's choir also performed by themselves. They were accompanied by a professional adult chamber orchestra. The children were polite and disciplined in their behavior, clear with their diction, and they sang difficult music with great enthusiasm. They are obviously receiving top-notch instruction. What a wonderful opportunity they have to sing in this choir, receiving expert musical training! Add to that the opportunity to perform with adult professionals, and you have a life-changing experience for each of these children.

...the pleasure I had in watching and listening to them perform. They were beautiful.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make sure it had enough money to transport the children to and from their concerts, as well as to hire more choral directors in order to reach more children in the Detroit area.

My daughter is a member of this choir. She has learned so much since joining. Some of the skills she has attained are reading music, working with a group, and time management. The experiences she has had are priceless. I really appreciate all that the choir has been for my daughter.
