TCHA offers several choir classes each semester: Music Makers (ages 5-9), Cantabile (ages 9-13), and Divino Voce (ages 13-17). We also offer a Boy’s Select Choir and a Girl’s Select choir for advanced singers.

Young men whose voices have not begun the changing process should sign up for Cantabile. Young men who have started or completed the voice changing process (the clearest sign of this is a much deeper voice) can audition for Divino Voce.


Registration for spring classes is closed.


Lisa Bernard

Lisa Bernard has sung professionally for over 25 years. Her voice has appeared on numerous radio/TV commercials and she’s recorded background vocals for many major Pop and Christian recording artists. She scored a top ten hit with her song “Better Than You” as Lisa Keith in 1993. Her favorite memory from that time was performing on the Jay Leno Show. Before her professional career, Lisa studied classical voice, enjoyed high school and college choirs, and was selected for All State choir.

Lisa has devoted herself to the music ministry at church, as well as leading choirs and music classes for the homeschool community. She also enjoys performing locally with her husband, Spencer Bernard (also a tutor at TCHA).

Being a homeschool mom, Lisa is excited being a part of TCHA and all it offers homeschoolers. She enjoys helping her students learn about music, experience the joy of singing, and glorify the Lord with their voices!


Diane Ryden

Diane Ryden is excited to join TCHA!  She taught elementary classroom and choral music in the Twin Cities for 14 years before stepping away from teaching full-time to raise a family and homeschool her kids.  Since then, Diane has stayed musically active by singing with Deo Cantamus and participating in the music ministry at church. 

Diane graduated from Augsburg College (BA in Music Education) and the University of St. Thomas (MA in Music Education with an Orff-Schulwerk certification).  She is passionate about helping her students develop their musical gifts to bring joy to others and to glorify the Lord!
