Caroling Kiddies/Twinkling Starlets


Last September, as part of our Vocal Arts Academy, we launched a new chorus for very young singers, (girls and boys aged 3 and 4 years old), called “Caroling Kiddies.”   The content of this program overlaps some of the Holiday repertoire of the Caroling Kids (aged 5-7), and the children, if they wish, may join the older children in some of their public performances. Once the Holiday season is over, these children become Twinkling Starlets in the Spring/Summer.


This Fall, the girls and boys will learn a range of Autumn and Holiday songs alongside familiar nursery rhymes. One or two favorites from the annual program will be included; we will be going to the bottom of the garden with our wiggly woo worms and ending every class by singing our lullabies to our teddies. In each class we encourage children to explore their singing voices and gain greater control over their pitch, rhythm and volume.

The overall aim of this chorus is to give children a solid musical foundation in rhythm, pitch, singing and movement, and enable them to experience the joy of singing with others.  By engaging in the Caroling Kiddies/Twinkling Starlets program, parents will also notice improvements in their child’s ability to concentrate, their language development, posture, breath control and refinement of their gross motor skills.  This program is also an excellent foundation for the skills they will need in preschool and beyond.

The class will be taught on a Thursday afternoon from 3:30 to 4:00pm in Mill Valley by Joanna Dudley, a qualified music teacher with 13 years of experience teaching singing to young children.  The children will be provided with a CD of all the songs they are learning so they can sing along at home. No previous experience necessary.
