Information and support from Dudley Performing Arts
Dudley Performing Arts are working on ways that they can help with music tuition during the period of school closure. Plans will be shared next week and will be published on their website and social media channels. Check www.dudley.gov.uk/dpa
after Monday next week and follow @dudleyperformingarts (facebook) or @arts_dudley (twitter) for updates. Please make sure instruments are not left in school.
Please encourage children to experience the Big Play on Friday 27th. This is an online celebration of music making in schools and incudes nearly 40 short films made in Dudley – you might even be on one! The ‘One Minute of Music’ films showing music in their classrooms will be shared on YouTube, Twitter and Facebook on Friday 27th March.
You could do the following:
- Subscribe to the Big Month of Music YouTube Channel
- Follow @WestMidlandsMu1 on Twitter and like on Facebook
- When our school’s film is profiled: watch it with your child, share it, comment on it, spread the musical joy!
- There are 150 other films: you could encourage your child to watch some of the other films of children making music in the region
On Tuesday 31st children will be able to take part in interactive singing sessions and watch a virtual concert filmed by schools who would have taken part in a big concert at Symphony Hall this week. This will be broadcast on YouTube and will let thousands of you sing along in your homes. Again, follow the social media links above to get more information as the day approaches.
