Start a children’s or youth choir in your school
Singing builds relationships, improves confidence and gives children a release of positive energy which enables them to focus their learning during other subjects for the rest of day. If your school are passionate about keeping the arts available for all, like I am, please get in touch to organise a designed proposal meeting (free of charge) to discuss how to bring more music to your school.
I offer lunchtime and after school choirs and singing clubs of all different styles, including “Glee Club”, singing to link into the National Curriculum and cross-curricular topics such as World War II or the Victorians, as well as more traditional school choirs and I aim to foster musicianship in all students, not just the most able, through use of the Kodaly method. Students will be actively involved in music, with actions, movement and pitch/rhythm games as well as learning how to read music using Solfa symbols and step-by-step teaching to challenge and include all.
I still have a few weekly time allocations available during term time and I promise to beat the cost of any current music provision you have by at least 5%. Please contact me for more information or to arrange a meeting at your convenience.
