“MYC is a platform for any child who loves music and has the heart to sing. Both my kids are born with that passion and when I started to send them to MYC they just loved it and they enjoy being part of the MYC family. I highly appreciate the work of the dedicated staff and recommend it to any parent to send their children as it caters to all age groups as well. Thank you MYC!!

– Meriam

“MYC allows us to provide our big family with a solid education in music – something we wouldn’t otherwise be able to manage, either financially or logistically! MYC also gives our kids a good peer group outside of school – singing together creates a lovely bond. Learning to sing beautifully is a skill and a hobby they can use throughout their lives, almost any time and any place! It’s very sociable and fun, and releases endorphins to boot! We are sure it will bring them much joy and fulifllment, life-long. We’re so grateful to MYC for giving our kids this opportunity.

– Liz

“I love MYC because it provided a place where my son was involved in a like minded peer group. It was an affordable option when it was greatly needed. It allowed his joy of music to be nurtured.

– Sue

“MYC is like an extended family to us. All members including the Board, Staffs and students are the most dedicated, sincere and passionate people we ever met in Australia. It is a good organization where our kids can safely grow and develop lifelong friendship and skills.

– Geralaine

“MYC is an extraordinary community focused on musicianship and togetherness. As a parent, I’m overwhelmingly positive about the musical knowledge my two children are getting from MYC.They encourage each and every individual chorister to reach their full potential.

– Shamila

“We love MYC because it offers a rich array of wholesome music for children to sing and perform thereby gaining many skills, great experiences and good friends. We are very pleased we found MYC and highly recommend it, especially to home schooled children.

– Louise

“..singing not only helps forge social bonds, it also does so particularly quickly, acting as an excellent icebreaker. We’ve also shown that community singing is effective for bonding large groups, making it an ideal behaviour to improve our broader social networks. This is particularly valuable in today’s often alienating world, where many of our social interactions are conducted remotely via Facebook and Twitter.

 Singing has also been shown to improve our sense of happiness and wellbeing. Research has found, for example, that people feel more positive after actively singing than they do after passively listening to music or after chatting about positive life events. Improved mood probably in part comes directly from the release of positive neurochemicals such as β-endorphin, dopamine and serotonin. It is also likely to be influenced by changes in our sense of social closeness with others.”
