This programme is designed to develop the skills necessary to communicate the dramatic content of musical text in a group to an audience. Children will be introduced to basic skills in acting through songs. They will interact with each other and show that they understand the meaning of what they are singing and speaking. The programme encourages children to develop practical team working skills. The ability to sing as a chorus or in harmony demands that everybody listens to every other person in the group and work with them to produce a performance that is in tune and in time.
