Using the acclaimed Growing in Grace Curriculum, the DBC Children’s Choirs encourage four year old - grade six children to discover and grow their musical skills and knowledge while increasing their awareness of and need for God in their lives. Each age-related choir meets Wednesday, 6:00-6:45 PM during the school year and provides musical opportunities and experiences appropriate to the child’s developmental age and ability. All children’s musical groups lead in the annual Lessons & Carols Service and POPs Concert.
The Pre-School Choir is for four and five year old children and is an experiential, beginning choir that explores the very basic of concepts about God and music through the singing of brief, small range melodies while enjoying guided physical movement and selected craft activities.
The Music Makers Choir is for grades one - three children and further develops understanding and use of musical notation in score reading while encouraging part-singing on more challenging music to deepen their faith in and understanding of God. This group occasionally leads in 11:00 AM Sunday worship.
The Young Musicians Choir is for fourth - sixth grade children and strives to advance personal understanding of musical notation and the practice of score reading, effective use of the singing voice and enable successful part singing. Also, in their maturing state, a knowledgeable, personal faith in God is encouraged along with instilling Christian stewardship of talent, time and energy of faithful worship practice and leadership in the 11:00 AM Sunday worship service. Over the years, this group has had several pieces composed for them by Minister of Music / Composer David Schwoebel and published in the Growing in Grace Curriculum.
Other Children’s Musical Opportunities on Wednesdays include:
Young Musicians Handbell Choir, a 5:40-6:10 PM 4th - 6th grade opportunity to learn basic ringing skills with handbells for beginning handbell ringers and ringers with one or two years experience.
