The NHS Choir is an ideal place for students to learn life skills such as responsibility, commitment, goal setting, self-discipline, teamwork, and leadership skills that are necessary for success after leaving high school, whether to continue in higher education or to join the adult workforce.
Each class will be teaching the music essential elements according to the outlines set forth by Texas state law. These elements include correct vocal and choral techniques, music theory, music history, sight-reading, performance etiquette, creative expression and careers in music. The NHS Choir is like a family and a great place to build lifelong friendships!
