The Children’s Choir School at Second Presbyterian Church offers a comprehensive music curriculum that encourages the spiritual and artistic growth of children age four through fifth grade. Children receive instruction in music reading, notation, rhythmic and vocal training, and ensemble skills like part-singing, tuning and blending. In addition, children deepen their familiarity with scripture and worship. Skills developed in Choir School lead to a lifetime enjoyment of praising God through music.
Children's choirs (Cherub and Carol) are currently meeting on Zoom from 4:00-5:00 p.m. on Sunday afternoons. We meet in the Children's Ministry Zoom Room (same link as Children's Sunday School). For Zoom details, email Patrick Pauloski or Ann VanMeter.
Because of the Coronavirus, children are not currently singing during Sunday worship services, but our children are still a vital part of worship at Second! The children's choir will be producing pre-recorded music videos for the following Sundays:
- February 21,
- March 28 (Palm Sunday), and

For children, age 4-1st grade
This playful approach to music learning will help children reach their potentials in singing, vocabulary development and motor skills while developing an understanding of church music and worship participation. Children will discover worship as a place where people express love for God and experience the Bible, its stories and people as a part of their everyday lives.

For children, grades 2-5
Children develop musical skills in music reading, notation, rhythmic and vocal training, and ensemble skills like part-singing, tuning and blending. Children will enhance their understanding of the power of music to express feelings, tell stories, and call people to Christian discipleship. Additionally, children will learn specific age-appropriate hymns focusing on theological, historical and cultural aspects and what they mean.
