Sparrows Children's Choir Philosophy
Our children's choir uses a uniquely designed program that Maestro Uwe Lieflander developed to instruct children from pre-K to grade 12. It is a complete pedagogical system that envelops the whole child and develops the full spectrum of music education from breathing to enunciation, from theory to music history. We have packed the high calibre of music that our founder's education, background, and experience have gathered into something available and accessible in schools and churches. The program is designed to unlock in the regular 'little Johnny' the intrinsic dignity and nobility that was created in him. After a mere few weeks, all our students come out of our classrooms delighted in the dignity they have discovered within and impress siblings, parents, teachers, and pastors with the professional music that radiates from them. "My son never sang before and we didn't think he had any gift for it. Now we hear Mozart flooding out of the shower every morning," shared a father of one of our students. According to our Maestro: "There are no tone deaf people; it takes a professional choral director to know and apply a few simple tricks to unlock the voice and you are home free. A most beautiful voice issues from the children's throats. The beauty takes my breath away: that is God's miracle."
One of the side effects of being a Sparrow is a real desire to learn another instrument besides voice. Parents are usually amazed that their child is asking them to arrange lessons. For those who do play another instrument, we provide opportunities at choir events to share the beauty they have learned with others in our choral community.
