DETROIT CHILDRENS CHOIR INC
January 24, 2011
I have become part of the Detroit Children's Choir family since moving to the Detroit area in August. I met Carol Schoch soon after moving and immediately was impressed in all ways. The vision of this organization for the children of the Detroit area, in community through music, is exactly what this city needs. In fact, it is a model for the nation in both areas of music education and societal unity. These children are receiving far more than musical opportunities for excellence. They are building skills that can bring them up as future leaders in any industry or community they choose for a lifetime. I am privileged to be part of it.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I am watching students' growth in musical excellence, in speaking skills, personal awareness in public, maturity, self-confidence and goal setting.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Expand it further to provide free music education on an even larger scale to other areas of Detroit as well as going deeper into the academic skill of reading music notation, which empowers individual musicianship. There is not time or funding right now to do so.
Professional with expertise in this field & I help teach students choral music.
