Sounds of Singing Workshops

Following on from the success of our workshop with the amazing Lucinda Geoghegan in October 2020, we are thrilled to announce a brand-new series of zoom workshops for primary school teachers in 2021!

This series of seven sessions will focus on different aspects of musical learning and how music can benefit the whole child. Singing will be the main focus, but over the six sessions Lucinda will also share simple, practical and fun ideas about the use of classroom percussion and development of listening skills.

Following on from the seven zoom workshops, we are very excited to announce that Lucinda will lead a Big Sing Day for primary school children and teachers IN PERSON in the Millennium Forum on Thursday 21 October as part of the 2021 Choir Festival.
