Over 200 children take part in our fun music events. Our singing weekend, led by specialists Alison Bennett, Ray Macleod, Jane McDouall and Phil Smith give everyone the chance to perform a variety of music in a friendly and secure atmosphere followed by a concert at the Royal Albert Hall.

Singers are divided into three age-groups choirs:

  • Vocals 1 (school years 1 – 2)
  • Vocals 2 (school years 3 – 4)
  • Vocals 3 (school years 5 – 7)

Copies of the words and music will be sent out about a month before the course and to help you practice you can opt to download rehearsal tracks from our website or receive a music CD.
