Community Music Project - Time to Shine
I was the joint-leader of a Community Music Project at Ralph Thoresby High School in Leeds. During the project I ran an after-school club with pupils aged 11-14 years to create a performance of 'Songs from the Shows' with singers and instrumentalists. Most of the students had never performed a solo or been a central part of a production and the project gave them the opportunity to improve their confidence, performance skills, ensemble skills, and technical abilities.
I taught singing and instrumental techniques during the project using my voice, the piano and flute. The project resulted in a filmed performance of 'So Long, Farewell' (The Sound of Music) and 'Stick to the Status Quo' (High School Musical), with a singing group and soloists accompanied by a small band.
