The PlaySpace Vocal Programme
is comprised of students ranging in age from 8-18 years old (Yrs 3-12). The human voice is, without doubt, the most accessible form of music making….and yes, everyone can sing!
While developing their solo instrument, students in the Junior and Senior Vocal Ensembles learn to sing with accuracy of pitch; create and maintain harmonic lines; connect with lyrics and interpret repertoire with expression; move to music to reflect beat, energy and style of the song; and develop a beauty of tone.
There is, quite simply, something exquisite about the sound of children’s voices joining together in song.
Singing is a powerful therapy, for both singer and listener. In a world where the notion of community is all too often at arms length, the shared musical activity that is singing aids bonding as it creates general feelings of positivity towards all those present.
Many describe the process of singing as a spiritual experience, as it transcends the physical self and stimulates some very basic, vibrational instincts as sound and expression unite. The act of singing together just makes you feel good!
