Hi. With the summer coming up, those of us with kids may be searching for fun things to keep the young ones satisfied over the long break.
We have received an email about a singing school coming to London this summer for children who love to sing. The course is 27th – 29th July at Heath Street Church in Hampstead, 2 minutes from Hampstead tube station.
The Oxford and Cambridge Singing school is for children aged 7 – 13. The course was originally set up in Cambridge in 2013 where the courses have been very popular, and since then, we’ve expanded to Oxford and now London.
The two lead coaches are Dr Edward Wickham, Music Fellow and Director of Music at St Catharine’s College, Cambridge (who established the first ever college based girls chorister choir in the country), and Ronald Corp OBE, Director of the New London Childen’s Choir and New London’s Orchestra. Both are passionate about introducing children to some great classical music. Their aim is to improve the general musicianship and musical confidence of children in a fun and supportive environment, so during the course we cover whole group singing, small group singing lessons, music appreciation, music theory in the form of games, quizzes, etc. They will also invite guest speakers to talk about specialist subject areas and more! The children are grouped according to their age and level of experience, so that they receive tailored group tuition. This is an inclusive course, so children don’t need to be able to sight read to join the course – they just need to love singing.
