Sing For Fun | Indian | Elementary Level

The Elementary level Sing For Fun Indian Music class is for students who just want to sing and have Fun!
OVIMA works with its students in a holistic way developing the student individually, and not just artistically and musically.


The course is for students ages 10 years and up who have been in the Beginners level class, and completed those requirements and ready for the Elementary level which is a little more advanced in technique and repertoire. This level is for students who would like to go to the next level. Students stay in this level until such time that they have completed the requirements of this class and are ready for the Sing For Fun Indian Music Intermediate level.

At the end of each session students do a graded performance. At the end of the year, students receive a Certificate of Achievement for the year if they have completed the Elementary Level requirments and are ready for the Intermediate level.

Students also receive a Progress Report at the end of each session indicating the progress they have made from the beginning to the end of the session with respect to technique, performance, class participation, practice, and attendance.
