Welcome to choral music at Hazen!

We have one of the top programs in Washington State and I am thrilled to work with each one of you. This website has our performance calendar, syllabus, sight reading documents, ensemble information, and, announcements. Guitar and piano students have access to course documents, practice materials, and, testing dates.

It is best to call during my conference and planning times. Otherwise, I read my e-mail after my rehearsals are over and I respond to them promptly.

Choral music is the cheapest and most inclusive form of classical music that exists. It binds communities together, and gives ordinary people access to the performance of some of the greatest music ever written for a fraction of the cost of any other classical music form. In this multi-ethnic age, choral music can be of enormous help in the integration of disparate cultures. It develops the mental, and therefore physical health of the participating individuals.
