St. Timothy's Episcopal Church, 630 Mississippi Ave., Signal Mountain, has announced that Michael Dexter has joined the musical department as director of children's choirs for children ages five to seven.
The class for beginners aged five meets Wednesdays at 4:15 p.m. and the class for ages six to seven meets at 4:50 p.m.
For this age group a new curriculum is being implemented this fall, "Growing in Grace: Step by Step." It involves all kinds of musical expression and movement and children will have opportunities to sing, ring and compose. Mr. Dexter will occasionally have Kids-Pages to send home so the activity and learning can continue.
Mr. Dexter started his educational life in Chattanooga and graduated from the Center for Creative Arts where he was a Choo-Choo Kid. His musical and acting skills have taken him to New York City and Disney World and he has done work off-Broadway and in regional theater. His Bachelor of Music degree is from the University of Miami and he is currently enrolled in the graduate program at UTC, where he will earn a teaching certificate. He is currently working on a musical based on Jack and the Beanstalk. He has had experience working with young children and teaches voice and piano.
