ARIZONA TOT CHOIR. The Tot Choir is our exceptional pre-choir preschool music education program for boys and girls age 4 to 6. We provide a fun, engaging, active program that will begin your preK-K child on a musical journey with music, movement, singing, dancing, and instruments to begin building a musical foundation!
Using the Kodàly experience-based approach, our Tot Choir uses folk songs, hand signs, pictures, movement, and rhythm symbols to promote musical literacy and lifelong music making!
Instructor Emily Keene is an early childhood educator trained in the Kodàly method and is the principal conductor for the elementary ensembles of the Arizona Girlchoir.

BOYS' VOICE CLASS. The question we are most often asked is: do you have anything for boys? For the first time, the answer is: YES! The Boys' Voice Class is our training program to help boys and young men become confident singers and performers. We help boys work through the unique challenges of the male singing voice and learn to perform effectively as soloists and with other singers and musicians. We work on skills such as posture, breath support, vocal power and registration, and stage presence, while also exposing boys to the basics of music theory and notation. This course serves as a foundation for future participation in choirs, musical theatre, and other performance venues.
This first class is for boys ages 7 to 12. If you have an older boy who is interested, please let us know and we will add you to the wait list for our teen class!
The Boys' Voice Class is under the oversight of the AZGC Artistic Director, Topher Keene, who was a quarterfinalist in the 2020 Grammy Award for Music Educator of the Year.
