About Edison Choir.
Here in the Edison music program, we strive to give students the skills they need to succeed as musicians and people. Students learn to think critically about their work, to work diligently within a group, and to be independent musicians. In addition to this, students will use music to connect to others and touch an audience. Students learn to be open-minded and flexible, they develop their self-expression through creativity within their pieces, and they create lasting relationships with their classmates. Whether our students choose to pursue music or not, we hope to instill the value of lifelong learning and a love of music.
Cristiana Franzetti is a singer, arranger, and music educator from Southern California.
