Classes

Vocal Exploration

The Vocal Exploration Program is a fun, non-performing class for children in second through fifth grades. This ten-week class meets once a week. Each lesson combines learning musical skills, group singing, and play-like activities/games that bring together learning experiences and fun in meaningful ways.

The program is a great way for children to explore their interests in music and singing—potentially preparing them for participation in one of the Jacksonville Children's Chorus performing choirs. Our hope is that they will bring their developing voices and experience to other learning and group activities in school and beyond. Parents are invited to observe the final class.

Vocal Exploration Classes will be held on Tuesdays, 4:30-5:15 PM at our downtown office located at First United Methodist Church, 225 E Duval St., Jacksonville, FL 32202.  The Spring session will run from January 23rd - April 3rd (no class on March 20th for Spring Break)

“It is gratifying the Jacksonville Children’s Chorus program covers so much of what is not available to children in the Duval Public Schools. The children who have an opportunity to participate in your Chorus are very fortunate to have this outstanding musical training available to them. The entire community benefits from your talent and that of the children.”

Dr. Frances B. Kinne, Chancellor Emeritus and Past President, Jacksonville University

“The JCC is more than just a chorus; it is truly a life-changing experience. The Chorus has opened me to new experiences, provided me with once-in-a-lifetime opportunities and helped me discover singing is not just one of my interests but rather a lifelong passion.”

“Music plays a major role in the full development of a child. Not only does it enrich lives, it also serves as a pathway for students to express themselves and explore new ways to communicate with others. For 20 years, kudos to the JCC for molding the lives of young artists, and I look forward to the next 20 years.”

Tim Cost, President, Jacksonville University

“I was in the Jacksonville Children's Chorus in 1999-2002. It helped me to build long lasting friendships and a greater love for music. To this day I still remember the fun times and great concerts we did in the JCC. I think this organization is great for children of all ages, it helps build confidence and friendships.”

“Through music and your leadership, these children learn to perform in different languages while experiencing the diversity of an array of world cultures. The understanding they gain will serve them well as they enter adulthood.”

R. Randall Onstead, former President/CEO of Winn-Dixie
