Vocal Exploration

The Vocal Exploration Program is a non-performing, first-level of training for children in first through fourth 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 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.

Ten Classes beginning Tuesday, October 6, 2015 (No classes on 11/24/15)

“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

“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.”

Emma, 17, Touring and Concert Choirs

“The Chorus expands your musical horizons and helps you grow as a person. You are surrounded with other young people who have something in common…their love of music. I have learned that music does, indeed, bring people and cultures together. The music we sing brings people hope for a better future of understanding and cooperation.”

Jasmine, 16, Touring and Concert Choirs

“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

“JCC truly embodies some of the best qualities of team sports: camaraderie, discipline, patience, persistence, and positive mentoring.”
