Britain’s Got Talent Alright!

Sing Education’s specialist music provision includes both curricular and extracurricular learning. Year group, school and community performances are some of the ways we seam the two educational types together. Whether vocal or instrumental, performances allow children to evidence both a personal joy of music, as well as their technical progression.

Schools

Performance is a key component of the Sing Education music curriculum. It’s one of the best opportunities for pupils to share their deep passion for music with the wider school community. It also serves as a practical way for them to evidence learning progression and skills mastery.

In our partner schools, performance plans most often develop as a natural collaboration between classroom staff and our music teachers. However, depending on the scale of the performance, various members of the school’s senior management team may also become involved. We’re excited when this happens – when we have the chance to demonstrate the power of “whole school” music.

How do we achieve this? 

Well, we do a lot of things like sharing assemblies where our teachers organise concerts showcasing instrumental and vocal students. In these instances, our music teachers support their classroom counterparts in helping the children to prepare for the event. Though our teacher may or may not be there on the day when the song or piece of music is ultimately performed, they nevertheless have an integral role in supporting the class teacher and ensuring the overall success of the assembly. 

We also assist with larger school shows, particularly at holiday times. No matter your music teaching timetable, Sing Education is on hand to help with Nativity productions, Easter shows, and end-of-year performances for graduating Year Sixes, for example. We’ll help our schools in any way that’s needed – engaging our music teachers’ support as an extension of the curricular music plan or by tapping into their own specialist knowledge

However, as amazing and highly-anticipated as these term-time performances can be, Sing Education truly believes that we’re in schools for learning first and foremost. A good performance is not just hitting the right notes in the right sequence or being camera-ready for Britain’s Got Talent. A fantastic, successful performance comes from having had good curricular teaching where students emerge with a strong understanding of the principles of music and a natural love of singing.

Their hands gesture in rhythm, suggesting a lively and immersive music class experience that highlights the power of choral singing in education.
