Boy Choir Program

THe Boy Choir Program

The Psalterium Institute Boy Choir teaches musical appreciation, vocal skills, creative expression, discipline, confidence, and comportment. These areas of formation are undertaken through rigorous rehearsal, private instruction, and engaged performance.


Most boys will begin their training in the Schola Prima, at around age 6 or 7, where they will learn the basics of singing and music appreciation.

When ready, a boy is then invited to join the Choristers where his music education continues.

No matter the ensemble, rehearsal and class time are challenging, fun, and upbeat. The boys will become close as a team and will gain these new skills together.


Instruction takes place in the context of rehearsal, class, and individual instruction. The areas covered include:

  • Music Appreciation
  • Ear Training
  • Sight Singing
  • Basic Music Theory
  • Performance Practice
  • Language
  • Vocal Technique
  • Comportment/Presentation
