Gospel Music Workshops

GT Choir Gospel music workshops for school children draw on the experience of a variety of professionally trained singers from traditional and contemporary backgrounds. This includes styles from jazz, folk, gospel, soul, pop, rock and contemporary music.  We aim to engage and educate school children about the different music genre and how important it is to our community. Particularly, we have different inspiring programme line up for the workshops ranging from vocal training, playing African drums etc. Most of the sessions involve practical engagement of the pupils to make a lifelong impacting experience. 

NOTE: All of our artists have enhanced DBS checks

A student testimonial:

On Thursday the whole school enjoyed spending a day singing and dancing with gospel singers who had traveled all the way from London. We hope you got chance to hear them sing at the assembly. This is what Charlie H and Harry B in Year 5 thought about the day ....

"This was the best day of the school year!

Today 3 gospel singers spent the whole day at the school. They gave us an assembly as well as individual class lessons. The School Choir also had 1/2 of an hour with them. Finally they had a big concert to round the day off!!

We would love to see the gospel singers again. We all love to hear music and songs from other cultures."

Teacher Testimonial:

 
"Good afternoon, 
I would like to communicate with you my positive feedback for our Gospel Touch Choir SMSC activities.
The members of the choir were motivating and engaging. They worked effectively with our students and were themselves very organised throughout all sessions in the day.
I have had the opportunity to work with numerous groups and organisations over that last 8 years and I can honestly say that the Gospel Touch choir are the best to date.
The message of tolerance, kindness, understanding, positivity and sharing good news was an integral and explicitly clear part of every session that the students experienced today.
The students involved left with their heads held high and smiles on their faces. I was surprised and very proud of the level of participation and self confidence that they were able to display today.
I have had a thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding day and even exercised my own vocals J
Michelle"
