It’s been 11 years since I started CCC! Community Children Choir at St Silas!
We rehearse on Thursday from 4-5 p.m. at St Silas Church Albert Park. We learn all styles of songs including singing in harmony and reading basic Kodaly notation, participate in ‘Bay St. Festival’, citizenship ceremonies and regular end of the term tea parties! All students of the primary age (6-12 years old) are welcome!
We learn how to sing together! In parts and canon like, with music games and Sol-Fa.
I use Kodaly singing approach and foster a ‘beautiful’ singing, where a child can hear his/her own voice and sing in pitch, hold his part and enjoy group performance.
Other things that I do:
I am a member of the Royal Melbourne Philharmonic Chorale, a great organization that allows me to participate at a wonderful concerts productions all around Melbourne!
Ukulele group of women, with occasional blokes participation, started in 2014 at the coffee drinking in the morning with my friend Rosemary! We now play and rehearse ukuleles with another 12-14 women on regular bases, who are happy to just have fun and learn new songs, sing and participate at various events. Actually, having fun, that’s the main future of the group!
So far, we performed at ‘Bay Street Festival’ twice, at ‘Linas’ bar in Albert Park several times, at Elwood club, Port Fairy Festival, birthday parties and 774 Radio and ‘Joy’ radio station! How exciting is this? Fabulous! Love it!
