About

The SPA Children’s Choir is an exciting opportunity for children in 3rd–6th grade to learn how to sing, read music, and work with others as they join their voices in song. Students are taught a variety of styles from contemporary pop to classical in a fun and encouraging atmosphere. Each semester will end with a public performance to showcase everything the students have learned, and for those who wish to take their training further, there will be opportunities throughout the year to audition for solos. The SPA Children’s Choir is an excellent chance to start or continue your child’s musical journey. Register today to join this wonderful class!

Teachers

Lisa Parker
Lisa graduated magna cum laude from Mississippi University for Women with a Bachelor of Music Education for kindergarten–12th grade. She has taught children’s choirs in both private and public schools from 1976–1991, taught a 6th grade children’s choir at Bellevue under Carolyn Higginbotham from 1986–1998, and directed a Bellevue Boys Choir from 1993–2000. Lisa has written and directed Bellevue’s SummerSing Children’s Musicals and CampOutrageous scripts in addition to the Singing Christmas Tree since 1991 and the Memphis Passion Play from 1992–2011. She has also been a member of the Bellevue Adult Choir and praise band since 1990. Lisa passionately believes that music is a gift from God. God has imbued power in music to encourage, comfort, convict, calm, and heal the body, soul, and spirit. Teaching children to experience, express, and create music should be part of every child’s early years. Music experiences contribute to better social, math, reading, and listening development and plays a major role in creative expression. Music is breath.
