We offer themed songwriting and music workshops to schools. Everything from anti-bullying songs, Leavers' songs, to school values and celebratory school anthems.
All of our one-day workshops are unique, presenting children with opportunities to sing, write lyrics, perform and record their ideas both individually and as a team - evaluating their progress and actively supporting the progress of their friends every step of the way.
Recorded material is then available free for children to download and schools can use the songs for presentations, assemblies, special events or for use out in the wider community.
We work across a wide range of educational settings;
Primary (KS1 and 2)
Secondary (KS3 and 4)
What a workshop looks like
Workshops are fun, involving warm up activities, games and discussions. We look at
sound capture, design and production. We think about how words, sounds and music make us feel.
We work in small groups and together as a whole class to capture and explore our ideas. Everybody has a say, and this is where the magic starts to happen!
Writing, recording and sounding out our ideas!
Now we need some team spirit and encouragement, along with a little bravery as we try out our lyrics and melodies, and SING!
While some are recording, others practising ideas and editing, we also need some visual ideas or artwork to help publicise our new song and music. Then we put everything together for our big reveal! Ta da......
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
Team work makes the dream work! Nobody is left out and everybody contributes to the key output of the workshop - the song (and sometimes a video too)!
There are no barriers to music making in our workshops. That's where music tech comes in. Children get hands on with the tech and tools we create with. New skills to take away after their workshop is over.
Our workshops are safe, nurturing and non-judgmental environments. We agree this together. We hold each other to these principles. We create together, respect one another and we record as one.
A song, melodies, harmonies, all written from scratch by the young people attending the workshop. All done during a unique, unforgettable and positive experience, one that lasts a lifetime!
