Neighborhood Training Choir

Neighborhood Training Choir

Our non-auditioned Neighborhood Training Choirs are the first stepping-stone to PYC’s choral education program. 


Neighborhood Training Choirs provide an exciting opportunity for young singers to discover their voice in a high-quality choral-education program that is close to home. 

Offered in two 12-week sessions in the fall and spring, each Neighborhood Training Choir focuses on singing, movement and musical activities that enrich, teach and enhance basic music concepts and music reading skills.  Singers will learn age-appropriate vocal technique as well as how to sing with musicality, movement and expression.

Participation in a Neighborhood Training Choir offers a peek into the PYC organization before making an extended commitment to join PYC’s core choir program.  At the end of each 12-week session, children who are in third grade, or entering third grade the next fall are invited to audition for placement into PYC's Troubadours.
