Children class

The participation of the children at the Byzantine music's choirs in the past centuries was something very common. We are absolutely sure for that from the paintings we find in many churches, from the witnesses of old chanters and from recordings of church services nowadays in Ecumenical Patriarche. The children with their beautifull, origin and pure voices add a sweetness to the melody and balance the raucity of the adult voices. The same time children have a very special advantage. They can "absorb" the melodies, the way of chanting, the notes, the rules of chanting and they lay the foundations to become good chanters in the future.

Considering the above, we took the decision to focus especially on the small children and to create a special class for underage children who want to learn Byzantine music. The children at this class they start to develop their "music sensors", to learn by heart hymns and slowly slowly they feat for first time the theory of the Byzantine music. The lessons of the children class are one hour per week.

The last four years that this class is on the children created strong friendships and the learning became a kind of enjoyment for both children and teachers. A children choir has been created and the children participate in real church services, they help the adult choir by performing hymns or by chanting "Isokratima" and many times they read the excerpt from the book of "Apostles".

We wish to our small students every success to their efforts!
