Kel Bahra, Ranelagh Primary School

I am Kel Bahra from Ranelagh Primary School, a teacher in year 5 this year, and I  have had the privelege of seeing you at work with young children. Our school has joined you over previous years in performances for NYPC and Igospel and we have thoroughly enjoyed the experiences. I would like to congratulate you and wish you all the very best with the launch of LIVING SONG.” Kel Bahra, Ranelagh Primary School, Newham

Course title: An Introduction to Songwriting

Date/time: Wednesday 6th July, 10am – 3.30pm
Training leader: Jane Wheeler

This course was requested by Sound Connections and offered delegates the opportunity to learn how to develop their skills in collaborative song making. We all have a voice and we all have songs within us. Through working together, using a variety of step by step processes, participants were guided on how to make up their own songs, arranging and singing them together and exploring ways to help and guide their pupils to do the same, whether for special occasions, or to enhance learning across the curriculum.

Audience: Teachers and teaching assistants in primary schools (key stages 1 and 2), whether they have any experience of singing and making music, or not.

Helen Evans, Sound Connections

What an incredible team! Our whole school, from Reception to Year 6 and all our staff had such a brilliant time creating this operetta and performing at Stratford Circus. Our parents were highly impressed with their children. Thank you so much!” Lando Du Ploy, Assistant Head Teacher, Kensington Primary, London Borough of Newham 13/07/11
