A special group just for our secondary school singers to grow and perform songs at a pace that suits their age!
**Combining Singing, instruments (optional), writing and arranging, this group will be made up of students who are now in secondary school, who are graduating from our younger singing groups, or wishing to join as new students.
**It will be lead by the students in partnership with me, and they will have their own specific lesson plans, targets and challenges to create and learn music that suits their age, add their own style to it and work in collaboration with each other – supporting group and solo projects with music, harmonies, ideas etc.
Class will still meet on Wednesdays 5-6pm in The Exchange, Buncrana (as their old singing class always has), but they will have a separate room to work on their own projects, while supporting and mentoring the younger singers in occasional group songs. They’ll have the chance to learn to use our voice and video recording equipment and run their own Music Box Seniors online music channel if they wish.
They will also help to organise our shows, assisting with stage set up, sound, and arranging their own performance pieces and helping to arrange the younger singers work too! It’s a wide scope of possibilities but it’s all there for the taking and I hope they grab as much opportunity as they can and bring their ideas to our groups too – I’d love to hear them!
**This class is not a replacement for Guitar Academy, as no instrument instruction will be given, but students are welcome to bring any instruments along if it adds to their work. Guitar Academy students will continue to attend those classes at their usual time.**
I really think this class will be a great step into musical independence for our older performers and an opportunity to show their own musical style and passion. I can’t wait to see what they do next!!
