My daughter started singing with SDCC in 2011 and my son began in 2015. I have loved watching them develop their voices, stage presence and overall confidence as a result of their time with SDCC. They have been everywhere with the choir - performing all over San Diego County and beyond! This has been one of the defining activities of their childhood, and I highly recommend this for all children.
We've had a wonderful experience in the choir this year. The teachers are wonderful and have built up my daughter's confidence over the course of the two seasons. They manage to teach the kids so much while keeping it fun. We are looking forward to next season for sure!
My daughter spent 10 years singing with SDCC and I served as a parent volunteer and on the Board of Directors as I so appreciate all the the choir has done for my daughter. Not only did she develop a beautiful voice, gained knowledge of choral music and music theory, she served our community. SDCC was involved in some fabulous community service opportunites. My daughter traveled with the choir, making joyful music all over the world. She made wonderful friends and learned the value of community service. We will forever have a special place in out hearts for SDCC and beautiful memories to last a lifetime. I will forever be grateful for the opportunites SDCC gave to my daughter!
Our daughter, now 11, has been in the choir since first grade. She's loved all of her conductors, even while chafing sometimes at the discipline. Now she's skilled in music reading, singing and professional demeanor, some of which she learned without even realizing that what she was experiencing was instruction according to a clear methodology - she just thought she was practicing and having fun. Though she has started and stopped several activities, including violin, which she does at school mainly to remain social with her musical friends, she's constant and dedicated with her singing. I don't know how far she'll go, but I won't be surprised if she keeps it up for her entire academic career and beyond.
