About:

 

The BIG Sing aims to provide music services to help schools give their students a variety of musical experiences. We aim to provide flexible teaching and training for teachers, students, whole classes and year groups - that means that we will custom build a music programme to suit your school.  Whether you are looking for training for your music teachers, a one off singing workshop for your school Choir or full term of workshops concluded with a final performance - we have the skilled tutors to meet your music needs.
 
STYLE
Our workshops include basic musical elements of rhythm, pitch, dynamics, melody, tempo, character, form and style in an experiential and unconscious way which is stimulating and exciting for them. All our courses include singing skills training where participants are taught vocal exercises, singing styles, projection of the voice, breathing techniques, unison and harmony singing, soloist development, group development, musical games.
 
SONGS
The songs that we teach are  well known inspirational songs or self penned songs written by the tutors themselves, specifically for the courses. The song lyrics always promote a strong sense of community and acceptance, whilst teaching children key values for life.  Musical style is very current, using gospel, R&B, soul, and pop styles to keep the students captivated.
 
COURSES
Many schools ask us to provide vocal workshops with their school choirs or music classes on a weekly basis for the whole of the School term. We will send our tutors to teach your students for 60-90mins each week and work towards an end of term final performance, which we will help your school to coordinate, so that the students can gain experience in performing live music to their friends and family.
 
SINGLE WORKSHOPS
Maybe you just need a single workshop for your students to inspire and motivate them. We would love to visit your school for ½ to a full day and give workshops to up to 60 of your students at a time. This way we can teach year groups, music classes, or school choirs in an intensive 2 hour workshop that incorporates our fun learning and child-centred principles.
 
SONGWRITING DAY
Has your School got its own 'School Anthem'? We offer the perfect package that will not only get your students songwriting, but will give them a fun packed day where they create their own School Song!  The 'School Song Songwriting Day' will give different workshops across the day where we first teach your students about different styles of music. They will learn about the different instruments that can be used and how they add to the song structure. After demonstrating examples they get to choose the musical style of their own School Song.  The next workshop focusses on the lyrics. We can look at your school promise and add them to the song. We will show the students how to piece lyrics together and create verse, chorus and bridge sections of their own school song. The final workshop will see the students recording their voices to the song.
 
We will then take the recordings to the studio to mix and master the music - and the completed song will be sent to your school within 28 days!
 
"The great thing about the day was that all of our students got involved...whether contributing through deciding the musical style or by singing on the track, they all felt as if they helped put the song together and it really became our 'School Song'"  J Write, Music Teacher at Sandborough Junior School
