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.

Foundation Singing will create a strong foundation for children to progress with singing or learn to play an instrument.

Young people can also apply for Step Up Singing for 8 – 14 year olds, and 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.
