“A very imaginative and interesting programme.”
Paul Harris (Music Educationalist)
Watch young people grow in themselves and their creative abilities.
The Notivate Singer/Songwriter Programme is a creative music course for children aged 9 – 13 years, in which they write and record their own songs. The programme enables children to express themselves, explore their feelings and perhaps try something for the first time. It offers children the chance to feel better about themselves and is about music, but is more about “me”.
There are six fun, practical sessions, carefully designed to encourage children to realise their creative potential and expand their emotional awareness. Based on 15 years’ experience of working with 4,000 children, recording 1,000 songs in 100 schools in Europe and Africa, the Notivate Programme helps to increase self-esteem, willingness to take creative risks and confidence to
learn. Other benefits include:
- Helping in the development of language and listening;
- Contributing to better mental and physical health;
- Promoting learning and general attainment;
- Encouraging listening and social skills;
- Strengthening relationships.
The scheme of work allows for opportunities to observe, assess and address issues such as pupil behaviour, relationships and learning styles, impacting areas outside the traditional music curriculum
As well as providing our own trained music leaders, we offer opportunities for music specialists to train as Notivate leaders in their own school.
