Keystone Hummingbirds Choir

Keystone Hummingbirds Choir 成立於2021年九月,起初由西雅圖台灣基督教會兒童台語班的學生組成,年齡層從3歲到10歲不等,主要以推廣台語文化為出發點,學習台灣囡仔歌的聲韻與音調之美,並結合多方語言的歌曲,讓小朋友體驗各國不同的音樂風格。課程中透過肢體的律動、音樂遊戲來培養小朋友對歌唱的喜愛,讓孩子在互動的環境中建立專業的音樂基礎訓練及正確的歌唱技巧,也在每次的團體練唱和表演中,訓練小朋友的專注力、自信心、團隊合作與領導的能力。目前採線上教唱,每個月會有一次的實體練唱,歡迎有興趣的小朋友們一起來唱歌玩音樂,意者請聯絡
