Singing Workshop-All Saints, Datchworth

Partner: All Saints Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School, Datchworth, Datchworth, Knebworth
Partner type: Maintained School
Project category: Music

The Singing Workshop is taught by our music teacher, Rufus Frowde, and is accompanied by a professional band.  This vibrant singing workshop, involving many local schools, promises to keep children busy making music for most of the day, culminating in a concert for parents at the end of the afternoon.  Our visiting schools also have the chance to perform a short item of their own.

 

 

Aims of the project

The project brings children together to form one choir and enjoy music outside of the classroom.

Background and goals

The project stemmed from our music teacher, Rufus Frowde, who partakes in many musical projects around Hertfordshire.  In hiring a live band, he saw an opportunity to allow children and teachers to learn music in a diffeent way; it is also a way to encourage children to take up a musical instrument or study music at a higher standard.

The Singing Workshop is one of our most popular events and has been established for 5 years.
