Foundation Singing

Your child’s musical journey starts here!

Foundation Singing is a choir that balances introduction to singing with fun activities and rhythm games.

It’s 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.
