Sing, Perform, Inspire!
CMA have been working with Primary Schools to bring quality music making to all. Children from year two to year six, regardless of ability or experience, meet with others from their year group at a host school, where they enjoy a day of music and fun, culminating in a short concert. It is wonderful to witness the quality of performance achieved in such a short session.
- Sing – learn to create, maintain and communicate fabulous singing to an audience
- Perform – share your music with the Head Teachers and Governors of your school
- Inspire – return to school, inspired to continue to engage in music with enthusiasm
