Many schools tell us they are currently unable to make singing the priority it deserves – lack of funding, Covid-19 restrictions, lack of budget to buy in resources/skills, lack of time for lesson preparation – let us help you!
In today’s climate pop music is becoming darker with more and more lyrics about sex, materialism and greed. We use upbeat pop songs and write our own songs which have motivational and inspirational lyrics to get the children singing happy, positive messages.
Deliver in school (We’ve got secure links to send sound tracks to parents too so if the singing element is restricted in your school the children can practice at home. You will still be able to teach the dance moves, actions, Makaton and Body Percussion in school.
In due course when restrictions are lifted we aim to host a concert so the children can perform together what they have learnt to their families, friends and the wider community – how exciting will that be!
