Bring your students together to write, rehearse, perform and record their own song – and see them grow in confidence, self-esteem, team work, health and happiness.
This 10-week programme of singing and songwriting is suitable for any class or large group of students from year 6 to year 13.
It’s ideal as a transition activity, or part of your music curriculum, to grow students’ enjoyment of music and belief in their own abilities.
What does it involve?
Weekly one-hour sessions where Ben O’Sullivan will work with your students to create and rehearse their own song. The shape and style of the song as well as the lyrics will be led by the students.
If the school chooses, the term-long programme can culminate in a recording session away day where students will also feature in their own video, shot on location.
What else do I need to know?
This work can count as one of your two interventions for the GHLL Healthy Schools award, as we will measure the impact the project has on the emotional health and wellbeing of the students involved. This is all done with a light touch, through anonymous evaluation forms. This, along with the Pupil Premium outcome measures, will be of interest to senior leadership teams.
