New after–school program, Texas Music Conservatory builds on the legacy of Texas Boys Choir.
May 8, 2020
FORT WORTH, Texas – Texas Center for Arts + Academics (TCAA) launches Its newest after-school program, Texas Music Conservatory, after successful launches of Texas Dance Conservatory and Texas Art Conservatory. Offering ensemble and private music lessons, Texas Music Conservatory brings professional training to developing musicians in grades K-12. During each year-long, after-school course, students will learn the fundamentals of music literacy, healthy vocal technique, and how to build a sense of self-independence and collaborate with their peers.
Ensembles will be led under the direction of the Artistic Directors from Texas Boys Choir (TBC) and Singing Girls of Texas (SGT). Private lesson experiences offer students the opportunity for one-on-one feedback and skill development. Our curriculum has foundations in Kodaly methods of solfege training and extended artistic training based on the National Core Art Standards and beyond. Classes are taught in a safe and supportive environment, nurturing students’ natural abilities and building upon them.
Classes will be taught at Fort Worth Academy of Fine Arts and Texas School of the Arts by highly qualified, credentialed faculty. Specific offerings and location are dependent upon grade level and course type. Registration for Fall courses is now open at ArtsAcademics.org/conservatories/music-conservatory.
