Music Workshops... the Beginnings!

Since 2006 a working partnership with Lillian Boutté and her band has led to an annual programme of singing workshops and concerts taking place at Pitcheroak and surrounding schools. For the young people who take part, these have become an eagerly anticipated series of events throughout the Spring and Summer terms which benefit them and the schools in numerous ways.


Music Workshops... the Benefits!

  • Developing language and communication skills

  • Building confidence in individuals to perform and express themselves vocally, through sign language and in movement

  • Developing musical skills through singing, dancing and playing instruments

  • Building links with parents and families who join in the workshops and at the celebration concerts

  • Developing skills to work with others

  • Enjoyment - the focus is on making learning FUN!

  • Involvement with other schools. We have brought in over 300 children from our local community to work with and learn alongside each other

  • Exposure to live music played by professional artists

  • Providing young people with a sense of occasion when they perform at our celebratory concerts. In 2008 the workshops culminated in children from 5 separate schools singing together at the Palace Theatre in Redditch

Music workshops... the Bigger Picture!

Alvechurch Community Choir has weekly workshops / rehearsals. Sometimes these are preparation for performance, but others are singing workshops aimed to improve our musical abilities and confidence. In addition, we have whole-day workshops twice a year to work intensively on selected songs. Sub-groups of the choir work with particular community groups or on specific co-productions with other organisations, so we often have workshops including other performers.
