Our singing sessions in schools throughout the Diocese is at the heart of our Programme. To support staff and pupils at home and in school at this time, we are adding new content to our YouTube Channel to enable Virtual Schools Singing Sessions.

Coronavirus Emergency: Music Appeal

Our Director of the Schools Singing Programme @thomas_leech writes for @ISM_music on our work during lockdown and the absolute necessity to fight for opportunity and equality in choral music - hugely under threat at the moment.

In this packed KS3/4 session, Alex explores common chord sequences, taking in over 15 songs in the process! We'll also use the fantastic gospel song Great is He to learn the musical meaning of "canon". Plus, One Kylection return! Today at 3pm

Tom's on in a few minutes! A lovely warm-up and some cracking songs, including Simple Gifts, El Cumbanchero and can you chuck a chop of chicken or chop a chiptole chilli up?

It's bleak and rainy today - why not pop one of our singing sessions on to brighten the mood! We have a new session out at 2pm, and LOADS of sessions available on our YouTube channel

@MusicMagazine I'm sure this isn't what you're asking for but...cheer yourself up with a singing session from @DOLMusic - throughout lockdown we've been smashing out excellent online sessions for the 1000s of children we work with, from schools to our cathedral choirs...

My voice is changing right now so I’m in this range where I can sing quite high or low, so I can either sing treble or tenor right now! When I sing it gives me more confidence in school and everywhere. The whole choir feels like a community and you get to meet lots of new people as well. My favourite pieces are some of the Glorias, I also like singing in other languages. 13 years old, Leeds Cathedral Senior Boys Choir ... See MoreSee Less

I feel happy because it just lets all your emotions out. I like singing. My favourite thing about choir is singing, and I’m really excited for the BBC broadcast. We’ve been rehearsing for it since September, since we came back from the holidays. If you feel nervous about singing imagine it’s only you in the room and you’re singing to yourself. When I joined I was really nervous, but my sister was in the choir (she’s in Seniors now) and she helped me to sing. 10 years old, Bradford Junior Choir ... See MoreSee Less
