Music education and singing specifically, is known to support the development of language and numeracy skills and encourage increased brain activity. After the success of their Membership launch in April 2012, the not-for-profit music education company wants to help smaller schools and those with less stable budgets to continue to be singing schools. Both the 6 month and 12 month packages also now include song download credits and an increased streaming allocation.
The package has launched just in time for schools to make the most of the exciting new plans Sing Up has for the coming school year.
The autumn term will see the first phase of Sing Up Local Training rolling out across the country, providing Members exclusive CPD sessions with expert vocal leaders. Training courses will run from September 2012 to March 2013 and can be booked via the Sing Up website: www.singup.org/
Sing Up’s next Webinar will be on 25th September. This exciting initiative offers Members the chance to access premium training live from their own homes, classrooms or even the school staff room. Members can log on to the Sing Up website (www.singup.org)
The next issue of the Sing Up Magazine is released on 15th October. Focusing on ‘Singing across the curriculum’ it provides lesson plans, activities and resources to help teachers and music practitioners put singing at the heart of wider learning. Plus the Sing Up CD includes 10 new songs, with audio and sheet music exclusively for Members to download for free into their Libraries.
Coming soon: Sing Up will soon be launching the My Sing Up Library desktop application. This simple-to-use desktop widget will sync with Members’ online accounts giving instant off-line access to their Libraries straight from the classroom or home. The innovative application is available exclusively for Sing Up Members.
Much more than just a book or a CD, Sing Up’s comprehensive Membership packages include all the integrated support that teachers need - online, in print, with local face-to-face training and through a national Awards scheme. The ever-growing Song Bank includes over 500 curriculum-tagged songs specially arranged for children’s voices, as well as the associated resources to make teaching them easy and fun.
