Singing is fun, and children benefit enormously from the chance to meet new friends, improve their musical ability and boost their self-esteem and confidence.
Vocal teacher Linda Cochrane directs the choral program at the Coffs Con, including the Junior Tones.
The Juniortones is for students aged 6-16 and rehearse from weeks 1-9 during NSW school term.
The choir performs at the Con and other venues throughout the year.

What are the benefits of singing in a choir?
Making music exercises the brain as well as the body, but singing is particularly good for improving breathing and posture, and reducing muscle tension. There is also evidence that music helps to sustain a healthy immune system by reducing stress hormones.
Singing in a choir will increase your skills in harmony, rhythm, balance, intonation and performance – and you’ll be able to take what you’ve learned back into your individual lessons.
