Singing is a fundamental and universal form of human communication, capable of great expression and used in all cultures. A huge variety of singing styles have developed in different regions around the world
Singing is part of any music curriculum. Whilst at primary school, children have the opportunity to sing in school choirs and in the Croydon Schools Music Association infant or junior festival choirs that produce large-scale concerts. Specialist vocal lessons are normally not available until secondary school. It is important to learn the correct way to produce the sound and to develop good tone without damaging the voice.
Interesting fact: our vocal lessons cover a wide range of styles: classical, musical theatre, folk songs and popular music. Pupils will have the opportunity to develop singing in the type of music they are particularly attracted to.
