Your child’s musical journey starts here!

Foundation Singing is an exciting way for children and young people to learn and develop their musical knowledge. They will sing together as a choir while also learning through a series of musical games, rhymes and movement activities. What children and young people learn in this class provides a strong foundation if they want to progress with singing or learn to play an instrument.

From September 2020, we will introduce Step Up Singing for young people aged 8 – 14 so Foundation Singing students can continue their development. There is also our youth choir Quay Voices for young people aged 13 to 19, this means that children in Foundation Singing can develop their voice at Sage Gateshead all the way up to 19 years old.
