The voice is our primary instrument. It’s one of the key ways we communicate. It has the added benefit of being free, portable and infinitely malleable. For these reasons, voice is the cornerstone of Sing Education’s approach to teaching. Through the voice pupils are able to access all areas of musicianship.

Curricular Music

High energy. Singing led. Full of fun. Never the same.

This is how Sing Education delivers classroom music. While meeting all the requirements of the National Curriculum, our Schemes of Work and termly lessons focus on getting children to actually experience and enjoy music. We don’t encourage them to reproduce sounds or melodies by rote. Each engaging and inclusive lesson uses our prepare, present and practice technique to focus their attention and build their understanding and musicianship.

Sing Education teaches curricular music in short, engaging units of 6-8 weeks. Each of these half-termly units has a Scheme of Work which defines the themes to be covered, musical concepts introduced and methodologies used. This enables our teachers to provide the same high-quality learning in every classroom they teach.
The 2014 National Curriculum sets very high standards for the teaching of music. Children are to develop a love of music, develop talent as a musician and build self confidence. Additionally, across each Key Stage, they are required to perform, create and understand music. Learn how Sing Education accomplishes these objectives and more.
Sing Education looks to extend and carry out the principles and objectives in the National Curriculum for Music Education through our teaching and learning.
We constructed our Schemes of Work into half-term units of musical study where new music concepts are intertwined with pupil’s previous musical progression.
Our Progression Map is constantly available to teachers, Ofsted and schools for reviewing the purpose, content and direction of every lesson we conduct.

Extracurricular Music

Extracurricular music is the music we tend to remember most fondly from school. Was it the choirs, clubs or singing assemblies that first stirred our love of music? Learn how Sing Education helps every child discover the voice within. Perhaps there’s another Sam Smith vocalist or Sheku Kanneh-Mason cellist among us.

In Sing Education schools, singing assemblies are often the most anticipated gatherings of the week. Children can be grouped by Year or Key Stage to actively make music together. It’s a powerful learning experience. Not only do pupils increase their musical skill, they also have the chance to demonstrate good behaviours and school values.

Clubs and choirs – whether after school or at lunchtimes – are an excellent way to round out curricular music. They give pupils the chance to let off musical steam, singing and playing instruments to their hearts’ content. They also allow mixed age groups to work together and to be challenged musically with new repertoire.

Instrumental and singing lessons deliver a wealth of benefits to students – they enable pupils to explore their musicality in small group or individual settings; they help widen pupils musical landscapes; they enable independent music making; they impact wellbeing and confidence. And moreover, by having an instrumental and singing programme in place, you can build school ensembles and put on performances for the wider community. Bring instrumental and singing lessons to your school and inspire a new generation of musicians.
Performance enables students to share their deep love of music and well-honed musical skill with peers, family and the wider school community. As an important adjunct to curricular music teaching, Sing Education regularly integrates opportunities for workshops and performances into the academic calendar. The emphasis? Encouraging students to develop a strong understanding of the principles of music and a natural love for the subject.

Workshop performances allow children to share their passion for music with the wider school community and develop their skills mastery and learning progression.
Vocal and instrumental lessons are valuable in any primary setting as they have a positive impact on children’s confidence, wellbeing and cognitive development.
