LEAP - NMC Children's Choir

2016-2017 NMC Children’s Choir

Grades 2-3

About the Program

LEAP is partnering with NMC to bring this fantastic opportunity to all 2nd and 3rd grade TCAPS students. This program will focus on basic singing skills with an emphasis on artistry. Students who love to sing and want to excel and exceed their weekly general music instruction will find themselves challenged in a fun and engaging 50 minute rehearsal. Students will be featured in a combined performance with the NMC Children's Choir in their final concert on April 30 on the stage of Lars Hockstad Auditorium.

Ms. Will holds a B.A. in Music Education from Luther College in Decorah, Iowa and an M.A. in Humanities from Central Michigan University.
