One of my favourite aspects of music is creating. Composition and Song-Writing are such an amazing creative outlet and I enjoy both creating and inspiring others to express themselves through original music making. I love writing songs for children to sing and enjoy, and always incorporate this into my music teaching.
Since March, it has sadly not been possible to sing all together in groups and choirs. BUT that doesn’t stop true music and singing adorers! The internet has been abundant with so many wonderful examples of how music can bring people together, even when they are physically apart. All you need is a backing track, a pair of headphones and a way to record yourself singing from home and – a virtual choir is born!
Here are some of the tracks I have put together during this time, homages to the wonderful music of The Beatles, Leonard Cohen and Kacey Musgraves! The vocal tracks I made were what the singers followed, and the remote choir tracks are made up of recordings made by the singers from their homes. Technology can be such an incredible tool. All singers in KS2.
Singing will get us through these hard times! Sing safely, sing joyfully, and share it with someone you love.
Take care out there.
