Accordion Lessons

In the summer of 2019, we trialled lessons on the accordion for members of the Cathedral Choirs. Classical accordion is widely taught in Europe and Asia to give children the independence of a portable instrument and has been used successfully in the UK in many rural primary schools to learn the basics as a transition to larger keyboard instruments. We consider the accordion to be an ideal transportable instrument for children wishing to begin learning a keyboard instrument, learning about musical harmony and coordination between two hands.

Super singing from our Bradford Girls meeting for their second in person rehearsal since March. Regular rehearsals are still online, delighted to hear standards maintained!

And in a busy day for our choirs, Bradford Catholic Girls' Choir rehearsed (in person! hooray!) this afternoon...here's a snippet of what they were up to...

The Cathedral Junior Boys' Choir met in person for the first time since March this afternoon - so lovely to see them all. The high standard that our choirs are returning at is testament to the excellent skill and hard work our team brought to zoom and YouTube sessions 🎶🎵🎶

12 members of Bradford Catholic Boys Choir sang Mozart, Casciolini and the Gregorian Missa Cum Jubilo at St Joseph's Church, Bradford this morning. We are enormously proud of our choristers for rising to the challenge of singing in limited numbers, two metres apart!

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
