SIGN UP, SING OUT: SING FOR YOUR SCHOOL IS BACK THIS SEPTEMBER

PUBLISHED AUGUST 2018

Our county-wide song-writing project, Sing For Your School, is back for another year, and there’s still time to sign up.

The project begins in September and gives students and teachers all the support that they need to write, record and perform their own song, from composition through to release online. Schools must be signed up by September 14.

It runs until the start of December, with the most successful entrants getting the chance to perform in a final showcase at the Cambridge Corn Exchange on March 13.

Sing For Your School is open to whole classes, year groups and key stages, individual singer-songwriters, or bands. This year it has the theme of “Wild Open Spaces”. Pupils will be asked to compose and record a song inspired by the countryside and wildlife of Cambridge.

Everyone who takes part will be able to submit their recordings to the Sing For Your School chart online, and share their song with friends and families to encourage people to listen in.

The project is also a great way to help improve pupils’ creative writing skills, and build their confidence and abilities in writing lyrics, melodies and accompaniments. To support this year’s focus on wildlife and nature, the project can also be linked to the key-stage two science curriculum.

Cambridgeshire Music provides a full work scheme, lesson plans, expert guidance from our music specialists, and extra resources like backing tracks if required.

The deadline for signing up for Sing For Your School is September 14, 2018. To do so, write to us at cm@cambridgeshire.gov.uk
