Musicianship Classes

Pacific Chorale's Musicianship Classes

Want to learn your choir music faster and with less stress? Become a better musician with Pacific Chorale's musicianship classes. Led by Pacific Chorale member Dr. Laura Harrison, these classes will help you unlock the mysteries of becoming a better sight-reader.

In order to give participants the best experience possible, we offer classes at various levels to suit individual needs. To ensure that you are placed in a class that is at your current musicianship level, please take a short assessment to identify which class would be best for you.
