| School programs |
Invite The American Boychoir to perform with your school choir, or have it present a concert for your entire student body. This is a great way to get students interested in local choral programs, especially the boys! Our school program is an informal concert setting which includes dialogue between our conductor, the Boychoir, and audience. Our boys have great fun because they get to answer questions about what they do everyday at The Boychoir School from your student body. It's an interactive session which includes performing music from our current repertoire. Our music staff always prepares interesting and diverse programs that are tailored for elementary and middle school music programs.|
Master Class Workshops|
| Our artistic personnel are available to present innovative learning sessions for professional and volunteer musicians. Whether a workshop on "The Adolescent Boy's Changing Voice," "Warming Up the Voice," or an anthem reading session of new repertoire, these practical presentations are designed to stimulate and enrich your music making. The American Boychoir will provide hands-on training in conducting and rehearsal technique as it applies to both professional and volunteer choirs. A complete list of workshop opportunities is available upon request.|
|Residency Programs for Colleges and Universities|
| The American Boychoir Artist-In-Residence Program is designed to mentor and educate talented musicians in the choral arts through instructional and performance opportunities. Conductors, educators, and students alike will benefit from the experience while expanding their knowledge of choral music performance, music education for children, as well as young male singers' vocal technique - including the adolescent changing voice - through interactions with a professional choral ensemble at work in rehearsal and in concert. This is a unique opportunity for your institute of higher learning, conservatory of music, or performing arts center to connect with your local community in a meaningful and collaborative way. The Artist-in-Residence curriculum is a 2 to 3 day program of study, in conjunction with a public concert by The American Boychoir, which you can structure to meet the needs of your institution.
| Holiday programs|

The Boychoir also performs for a number of private holiday celebrations in New Jersey and New York City.|
