Birralee Piccolos

Who are they?

The Birralee Piccolos are an un-auditioned group of children ranging in age from five to seven years (prep to year 1). As Voices of Birralee's youngest children's choir, emphasis is placed upon having fun and the children developing musically through the selection of appropriate music literature for children. As a result, the Piccolos make a beautiful sound for such youngsters. 

As the Piccolos develop their confidence and love for singing in a disciplined and fun environment, they are also learning the fundamentals of music literacy and aural perception. During a weekly Piccolos rehearsal the children are encouraged to participate in games, singing and to get physically involved in the creative music making process. Activities are aimed at their level of development, supporting their music growth as well as their emotional, social and physical development.

The Piccolos also work towards a number of performances throughout the year, further helping them develop their learning, memorisation and confidence.
