Sing Up, the organisation with an 8-year history of supporting singing in primary schools, has launched a new membership package for secondary schools designed to support the learning needs of older students.
Since the end of its government-funded days three years ago, Sing Up has been trading successfully as an independent not-for-profit company working exclusively with primary schools. Now, for the first time, secondary schools can also benefit from access to a newly expanded Sing Up Song Bank containing song arrangements and resources specifically designed for use with secondary-aged students.
Sing Up Secondary will support teaching and learning in music from KS3 onwards. Building on the educational and musical experiences that pupils have at primary school, Sing Up has created a set of songs and teaching tools to help music teachers use singing as a route through the secondary music curriculum. In addition, the Sing Up Song Bank now includes more advanced repertoire for older voices, which will be invaluable for choirs.
Information for class music teachers, vocal teachers and choir leaders.
Sing Up Secondary includes:
- Songs and resources for use with classes from KS3 up to sixth form. Lots of songs and warm-ups to help you teach the music curriculum including: performing, improvising, arranging, composing, listening and appraising. Search/display songs by musical topic, scoring, style and age.
- A range of useful scores and audio including: melody/lyrics/chords, chord song book, full arrangements, parts for class playing/singing (including tab), performance, echo, backing and rehearsal tracks. A range of scoring formats for choirs including flexible, upper voice and mixed voice arrangements. Consideration for changing voice and suitable keys/part writing.
- Great repertoire for a range of choir abilities; simple enough for Year 7 class singing, right through to sophisticated part-writing for upper sixth-form and chamber choirs.
- Performance material suitable for KS3, BTEC, GCSE and A-Level solo/ensemble vocal performances, including piano accompaniments and high quality backing track accompaniments. A range of repertoire suitable for small group and individual singing lessons.
