Havering Singing Afternoon: Celebrating Singing in Schools

Sound Connections is delighted to be producing and developing a singing conference for Havering Music School. This unique event, taking place on 1 June 2015, is dedicated to celebrating singing in schools. The day will focus on learning new techniques from practical workshops, a specialist keynote speaker most importantly enjoying precious time to network with others. Alongside developing your own practice, you will get opportunities to identify your singing needs and discuss the next steps and priorities for singing in your schools.

Sue Nicholls will give an inspirational keynote speech and lead ‘Singing at the Heart of the Curriculum’ workshops exploring repertoire to stimulate, enhance and support learning from Early Years to Key Stage 2. Jane Wheeler will give expert advice about leading and engaging vocal groups, warming up healthily and choosing and arranging repertoire in the ‘Leading a Choir’ workshops. There will also be ‘Singing Assemblies’ workshops with Margaret O’Shea and Pippa Wright, introducing new repertoire and ideas to get everyone singing together with confidence and enjoyment at Key Stages 1 and 2. There will be a choice of 3 workshops to attend in both the early afternoon and late afternoon sessions. Early afternoon workshops will be aimed at those who are broadly confident at leading singing and late afternoon workshops for those with less confidence at leading singing.

This FREE event is for all primary schools in Havering, Redbridge, Barking & Dagenham, Thurrock and Essex.
