Planet Earth Composition Project
This is a compilation of songs created by composer, Holly Marland, in collaboration with D/deaf children, as part of Music and the Deaf's West Yorkshire Music Programme.
Taking care of our planet, was an important and inspiring topic for all the young people involved. Holly Marland visited our music groups and offered creative workshops, which invited them to compose their own songs. We are now pleased to present this resource and make it available for teachers to use in their own schools, using either singing or British Sign Language or both. Feel free to use this resource as inspiration to discuss why it is important to take care of our planet or to create your own songs yourselves! Consider using rhythmic vocal sounds, body percussion or any other instruments as an accompaniment. We hope you enjoy using these songs or creating your own as much as we did.
We would like to thank the Hollyhock Charitable Foundation for their generous support as well as our partners including the local Music Education Hubs and schools who took part in this initiative. Thanks must also go to Paradigm Ltd and the musicians who worked with us to produce this recording.
