Our Purpose

“Give someone a fish and you feed him for a day.
Teach him how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”
— Chinese Proverb

What does the above proverb have to do with singing?

Plenty! The philosophy of FAVA is not just to teach songs to children, but to teach them how to sing, how to produce a beautiful tone, and how to read music, so that they can enjoy singing for a lifetime. Our objective is to develop the potential in each young singer, enabling them to read music intelligently, sing with healthy vocal habits and to express themselves through music.

Areas of Particular Emphasis

Students will earn certificates and awards for achievement in six areas of the FAVA curriculum:

  • Vocal Production
  • Diction
  • Sight-Singing
  • Music Theory
  • Expression and Presentation
  • Choral Skills
