What's on Offer?

There are a range of options available to help support music making within Secondary Schools. Below is a flavour of projects that we could deliver within your school.

5 x 1 hour sessions for KS4 young singing leaders

Massed Choir Sing

Taiko Rhythms


Defined by its dynamic playing style, Taiko involves choreographed movement which many identify with Japanese martial arts. It is noted that the principles of Taiko can help with developing respect for one's self, other players, and the instruments in order to bring about a discipline of both body and mind. Aimed at KS3, the programme consists of 10 x 45 minute lessons with a class size group, use of a set of Taiko drums for the duration of the project and teacher training for school based teachers. Using CPD we could support the class teacher to use the drums with further pupils within the school

Whole Class Ensemble Teaching (WCET)


Schools may not pass on costs to pupils.

Weekly instrumental lessons for whole classes (maximum 33 pupils.) Lessons are 45 minutes long and there are a minimum of 30 over one year. Instruments are provided and where appropriate pupils can take them home to practice. Available on the following: Brass, Djembe, Guitar (Acoustic), Percussion, Steel Pans, Strings, Ukulele, and Woodwind.

Transition Sing

Singing projects which bring together the combined energies of primary and secondary pupils and their teachers are a well proven way of strengthening the relationships between schools. The project can be tailor-made to suit your individual requirements but will include visits to Primary Schools to help teach the music, resources and the opportunity to train students to become young singing leaders and lead singing activities during the project.

Young Singing Leaders

This 5 session project will train your pupils to be Young Singing Leaders. Each session will last an hour and later in the term they will have the opportunity to work with KS1 & KS2 children at a local primary school. A great transition project, which can also be incorporated into the Transition Sing.

Massed Choir Sing

Join forces with other schools to perform in a massed choir. Includes inschool rehearsals with a singing specialist, massed rehearsal in a central location culminating in a large scale performance. Resources included.
