Melody Choir is a joyful choral experience for children who love to sing. Students learn to join their voices in unison, sing expressively, and work as a team during group voice lessons. The members of this ensemble receive weekly instruction in music theory and sight singing. Melody Choir students perform a varied repertoire of high-quality, age-appropriate music. Beginning part singing is introduced through rounds and partner songs. The singers enjoy singing with others and alone, as they participate in fun activities and games, which instill correct posture, breathing, and voice production, while developing pitch matching and rhythmic skills, and training musical memory.

Melody Choir singers reach millions of people in the US, bringing joy through outstanding performances, recordings, film and TV appearances, collaborations, and outreach.

Past performances include NBC's The Voice, Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards, Super Bowl LIV halftime show, ABC's The Wonderful World of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration, LA County Holiday Celebration, and Hallmark's Home and Family Show. The group appeared at Carnegie Hall, Disney Hall, Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, The Soraya, Notre Dame de Paris, Arena (Staples Center), and Kyoto Concert Hall. Classical music collaborations include work with Los Angeles Opera, the Burbank Chorale, Hollywood Studio Orchestra, and Symphony in the Glen.

The choir worked with film composers Michael Giacchino, Jeff Kryka, Danny Bensi, Dan Romer, Alan Silvestri, Glen Ballard, Beto Hale, Nuno Malo, Arthur B. Rubinstein, and Jamie Christopherson, and collaborated with producers DJ Mustard, Mike Dean, Jason "Cheese" Goldberg, 88-Keyes, Malay, Mark Needham, and Teddy Walton.
