CHOIRS4KIDS returns to Joondalup Library this weekend with its community singing groups for three to six and six to 12-year-olds.

Choirs4kids runs community singing groups for children to encourage them to sing and express themselves with their voices.

Sue Ross founded Choirs4kids in 2016 after being a primary school music teacher for more than 20 years and seeing the need for all children to have access to singing from a young age.

“My own daughter, age three, was singing all the time and I just knew I had to do something about it,” she said.

“In most schools she wouldn’t have had access to singing until around age eight and for many this can be too late.

“Singing is something that is easily accessible for everyone as we are all born with a voice.

“I promote community, non-auditioned singing for all ages three to 80+.

“We don’t have to purchase this instrument, nor spend time setting it up or repairing it – as long as we are careful.”

The program, which won the best new activity for kids title in the What’s On 4 Kids awards in 2018, will be part of the Community Choral project choir in April.

The Saturday classes resume on February 9 at Joondalup Library from 9.45am for three to five-year-olds and from 10.15am for six to 12-year-olds.

Children’s classes and adult singing groups also run in Baldivis, Melville and Bull Creek.
