Enriched Theory Education Program - RCM Levels 5 to 7

MCC's new Enriched Theory Program is geared towards young singers, designed to enrich their choral experience by providing them with personalized music education. Not only will this program prepare choristers for an RCM exam, but also further develop their music theory knowledge and music literacy, helping them to excel in choir and all of their musical endeavours.

Who can sign up? 

  • Choristers who have completed Book 2 of their Young Singer’s Journey books (recommended), and/ or have had prior music education experience (ie. piano lessons)

  • Choristers in Grades 5 and up in school, however accommodations can be made for individual situations

  • If you are unsure if your child is eligible, please email jperesin@mississaugachildrenschoir.com 

What is the structure of the program? 

  • Each class will have a maximum of 3 students

  • Group classes will take place weekly over Zoom for the whole year 

  • Students will be placed into RCM levels 5-7, determined through a placement test before the program begins 

What will classes be like? 

  • Weekly Zoom classes, live with Joelle Peresin, with interactive lessons curated towards young singers 

  • Homework assigned weekly (roughly 30 minutes to 1 hour of homework per week); students to scan homework and send to Ms. Peresin for marking and personalized feedback 

  • Students will be given multiple mock exams, the first being approximately three weeks before their exam date

  • Those who choose to write the RCM exams will do so in Summer 2022, with the exact date to be determined by the student, their family, and the instructor. Families have the choice whether or not they wish to sign their child up for an RCM exam (exam fee is not included in program price)
