Signed Song has become very popular in the last few years and many schools have signing choirs.
We have run lots of workshops and training events around the country and created various signed songs videos to encourage people. With support from Sing Up we have trained several new leaders who also act as Regional Co-ordinators to develop both signed song skills and choirs.
In Nov 2010 the Jersey Eisteddfod was the first music festival in the UK to have a signing choir class. Paul Whittaker OBE has been invited the adjudicate this class since it started and is looking forward to returning again in November 2013.
We are hoping to set up community signing choirs around the country so please contact us if you are interested in working with us.
“Thank you so much for such a fantastic day on Wednesday. It was such an amazing feeling hearing the kids sing. We have been trying for so long to get them to do it and finally their barrier is slowly being broken down. It was another inspirational day from which I took lots and I am sure this is the same for the students.”
“The team were absolutely brilliant and all the kids got involved and were really engaged. Feedback from staff was really positive too and everyone has been asking me when MATD are coming back!”
