Music Explorers

The Music Explorers group helps children who love to sing develop basic musical skills to help prepare them for the Apprentice choir. Music Explorers is designed mainly for those in 1st and 2nd grades. These choirs use melodic and rhythmic instruments along with movement to reinforce and develop singing and music reading skills.

There is no audition to participate in Music Explorers. Some students are invited to join as an outcome of their audition for Apprentice or Choristers. Interested parents should contact Margaret Ruf – or use the “How to Join” form on this page. Music Explorers meets in the spring semester and is limited to 20 children. The cost for each child is determined at the beginning of the academic year, and a deposit may be required in advance. Families are notified of these amounts and procedures by the start of the summer.

The choir meets in the choir room at the First English Lutheran Church at 215 West Pine Street in Platteville. It meets January to April every Monday from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. More detailed information can be obtained from the Children’s Choir calendar. Additional information about the calendar is handed out at the first rehearsal.

At the end of the program, children are auditioned to determine their readiness for the Apprentice Singers.
