Extra–curricular Activities in the GPA Program
All children (infants through Kindergarten) participate in First Steps in Music, developed by Dr. John Feierabend, who is widely considered THE expert in the nation for teaching music to young children (http://www.feierabendmusic.org/john-feierabend/).
His mission is to make "tuneful, artful, beautiful" children, who grow into "tuneful, artful, beautfiul" adults. There is a LOT of vocal training that goes into his curriculum, as he is intent on nurturing children who can sing in groups, have an "ear" for the music, and be confident to sing by themselves in front of people. One of the ways he nurtures this is via the "arioso" concept of unstructured conversational singing.
