Train the trainers to become Choir Directors

by Fundacion Sirenaica


Sirenaicas Foundation is a choral school where singing talents are discovered, convened, taught and strengthened, within low income communities. The idea is to create a Directors School, starting with a workshop of Choral Direction at a basic level. We would convene within Sirenaicas Foundation to train our members in order to empower them in this art, widen the choral movement in search of cultural growth in Medellin, as well as reinforce a mission that started 15 years ago.

With 15 years' experience through choir education, we have evidenced that the Young professors, founders of Sirenaicas processes, claim the need to train in Choral Direction, in order to achieve the maximum level of preparation and with this the last piece to complete the process for their professional development as singers, directors, and/or professors, transmitting to their own communities what they have received during their formation.


With this training the students could have new tools for their life. This Project is aimed at preparing 30 persons, this means an average of 1.200 children, youngsters and adults would benefit in the city, during the first year, if each professor forms a minimum of 2 choirs with an average of 20 members per choir. It would take place in four day modules, eight hours per day: 1 Children's choirs, 2 Teenage choirs, 3 Mixed choirs.

Long-Term Impact

Under the proposition of train the trainers, the Project not only pretends to qualify this generation but also the children and youngsters who are part of the foundation will have the possibility of exponentially train increasing the coverage of Sirenaicas work as well as the choir work in the country. Choir Directors having come from marginal vicinities will be an example for many children and youngsters in their own communities.
