Using our voice is the most natural and enjoyable way to be involved in music-making. With the support of our partners, SoundStorm programmes a diverse offer for schools to enhance and support all kinds of singing from Key Stage 1 through Key Stage 5.
SingScape will continue this year (20/21) following its postponement during lockdown: its simple ambition is to engage schools to develop or build on its culture of singing. We aim to enhance in-school singing, support pupil’s personal development, build staff confidence and develop a culture of good singing practice within and potentially between schools.
The programme adopts a wider approach that will support schools to develop not only singing but also musicianship. Additionally and in these challenging times, it will support the Social Moral Spiritual and Cultural (SMSC) agenda with a refreshed focus on well-being, using singing to help rebuild school communities.
The type of support we offer can include:
We also have a long-standing tradition of working in partnership with other organisations, to extend our Singing offer. For the last three years, we have been worked with Armonico Consort’s, AC Academy. Their choir builder programme has enabled thousands of local children to perform in both Lighthouse Poole and The Royal Albert Hall.
We’re currently in talks with some major players so watch this space for an update on our 20/21 offer.
To help schools become familiar with Charanga and make the most of the subscription, offered as part of the Hub Package, the SingScape practitioners will use and signpost colleagues to the singing resources.
In addition, the Hub supports local choirs; this year we’re delighted to confirm the return of ‘Vocability’ and the Funky Little Choir…click the links below to find out more.
SoundStorm are pleased to announce the return of Vocability ‘The Next Note’. The choir aims to inspire young people to continue to develop, their love of singing…
