Classes

Vocal Exploration

The JCC Vocal Exploration Program is a fun, non-performing class for beginner-level singers. The class meets once a week for ten weeks. 

Each lesson combines topics like musical skills, group singing, and play-like activities and games that merge music and learning experiences that help your child engage with music in fun and meaningful ways.

This program is a great way for children to explore their interests in music and singing, preparing them for an audition for 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.

 Contact the Jacksonville Children’s Chorus at (904) 353-1636, ext. 3 or email us for more questions.

“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 , Former Chancellor Emeritus and Past President, Jacksonville University

“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

“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

“Being a part of the JCC has not only allowed Christian to experience the fun, excitement and pleasure of singing with friends, it has also helped him to develop a sense of confidence that comes from life skills of hard work and perseverance.”

Elaine Bourne, JCC Parent

“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.”
