Music education, reinvented

COVID-19 has impacted how we interact in so many ways, and choirs have been particularly affected. BYC is proud to present our reinvention of in-person rehearsals -- Music Beyond and Musicianship Training workshops. Sign yourself and your chorister up for one or both! 

2020-21 Virtual Season











Music Beyond

Topic workshops, open to all

One weekly workshop, taught by a rotating cast of guest artists and musicians, will focus on a new vocal music topic each month. Some ideas for topics include Musical Theatre, Jazz, Gospel - and so much more. We look forward to learning with you! 

Music Beyond will be offered as an annual or monthly membership plan, and BYC is excited to take advantage of the online platform by offering these workshops to BYC choristers, friends, and families regardless of physical location.  That means your friend or relative who lives in a different state, country, or continent can join us! 

We are looking for musicians to teach these workshops! If you know a music teacher, performer, or scholar who may be interested, please reach out to us. You can view the full job description here.

Musicianship Training

Third grade and older

One weekly class, taught by the intrepid duo of Nicholas Gorne and Nathan Shiu, will focus on preparing thoughtful and independent musicians.  
Musicianship skills such as solfège, takadimi rhythms, scales, modes, and sight-reading will provide the foundation for more confident music-making. 

One class will operate weekly with the option to add another class depending on registration numbers.
