Kaufman ISD Choir
The choir program at Kaufman ISD is fairly new and growing.
The students are learning that being in choir is a great way to earn their fine arts credit.
We strive to enjoy singing and become skilled musicians.
It is a place to call home.
Choral Opportunities and Descriptions
It is the desire of the Kaufman Choir program to provide the utmost benefit to each individual student’s musical learning experience. To achieve this goal, students will be placed in one of the following choir classes according to their grade level or their talent:
All sixth grade students will be placed into this choir. This is the fundamental foundation of our choir experience, and the class where the most basic methods, rhythms, and techniques will be taught on a level that each student will feel successful with.
Junior High Choir
All seventh and eighth grade students will be placed into this choir. It is during this class that we will focus on taking the basic music fundamentals learned in sixth grade and bridging them to the more complicated fundamentals learned in the high school choirs.
Most ninth grade students will be placed into this class. This will be the class where we take the basic and intermediate fundamentals learned in the beginner and junior high choirs, and begin to intertwine them with the more advanced fundamentals taught in the junior varsity and varsity choirs.
Junior Varsity Choir
Most tenth graders and a select few ninth graders will be placed into this class. This class will delve into the more advanced musical concepts and provide more opportunities for individual and group development of students’ singing voices.
Eleventh and twelfth grade students who have had choral experience will be placed into this class. It is during this class that we will fully involve ourselves in the most advanced musical techniques, rhythms, and developments.
This class is reserved for the most advanced singers. This class will provide many more opportunities for a student to involve themselves in the most complex musical techniques and concepts. All students enrolled in this class must concurrently be enrolled in one other choir class, and must audition for the All-Region choir.
