"Singing can improve pupils' learning, confidence, health and social development. It has the power to change lives and build stronger communities."
The National Plan for Music Education
The Singing Project is the outcome of a pilot project which explored the use of singing to support foster children in their transition to a new school. The results from this pilot were very positive, showing how singing has enormous benefits emotionally, physically and educationally, and helps not just vulnerable children, but all children to settle, engage and flourish in the classroom.
This Singing Project training is suitable for class teachers, teaching assistants, music co-ordinators and any other staff who have responsibility for the transition of Looked After Learners, as well as other vulnerable children. The training will look at theories that promote singing as a vehicle for healing, and explain how singing reduces tension, boosts self-esteem, provides an outlet for feelings, helps speech, builds brain connections and helps children learn and remember. Importantly, it will also provide delegates with a range of easy to use singing activities and resources to take back to the classroom and start using right away.
