Free Singing workshop with Friday Afternoons and Snape Maltings

March 26 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm


A FREE Twilight workshop for teachers, in partnership with Friday Afternoons and Charanga, to explore the FREE songs and other materials available to all schools in Sunderland, via www.sunderlandmusicdigital.org.uk and fridayafternoonsmusic.co.uk

Register 3.30: start time 4; finish time approx 5.30pm (there will be time for questions/answers from the organisers afterwards).

Friday Afternoons is about encouraging young people to sing. Their newly composed songs and support material aim to help teachers develop their students’ skills – as performers, listeners and composers.

Join Sunderland Music Hub and Friday Afternoons at Oxclose Community School for a highly practical vocal workshop which will introduce the project, develop vocal leadership skills and explore innovative and exciting ways to use the material and supporting resources to develop creative responses.

Aimed at classroom teachers, music teachers, singing teachers, choir leaders, all working with predominately Key Stage 2/3, or children aged 7-13.

All resources are available on the website for FREE and are yours to re-interpret in whatever way you and your students imagine.

About Friday Afternoons  – These resources present a great opportunity to not only access high quality new vocal music, but to use the material and supporting resources to develop creative work using the songs as a start point.

This creative way of working is a great way for a school to develop their own artistic identity, and for teachers to explore new ways of approaching singing using the exciting and varied Song Bank. The songs are written for a variety of abilities, so are appropriate for primary classroom use, right through to youth choirs and secondary schools. Signed video and Braille scores are also available on the website, along with many other supportive resource.

In addition to the online resources, Friday Afternoons supports new and innovative singing projects through our Project Fund.

Visit fridayafternoonsmusic.co.uk for more information. Feel free to contact Snape Maltings direct, or to visit the Share section of the website where you can find examples and ‘how to’ video guides to creative response work.

You can also get in touch direct to discuss how your school or organisation can get involved:
