We believe in the power of singing to bring young people together and we want to share this experience through our workshop programme run by our high-quality NYCGB vocal leaders.

Our sessions support 15 musical, physical & developmental learning outcomes for young people and we aim to get participants of all levels of experience singing their socks off! In 2019 80% of participants rated our workshops very highly and 92% of teachers reported picking up tips and tricks to take away from the sessions.

It is important to us that NYCGB workshops have as few barriers as possible to taking part, and so all songs are taught by ear, with no need for specialised equipment or knowledge of music reading.

What to expect from an NYCGB workshop:

  • Accessible & inclusive for all
  • Fun & energetic with a wide range of repertoire
  • Led by high-quality vocal leaders

Ready Steady Sing offer for Primary Schools (also suitable to support primary-secondary transition)

Our action-packed ‘Ready Steady Sing!’ workshops are aimed at primary groups and are suitable from Year 3 upwards.

We recommend groups no larger than 100 pupils to make sure that everyone has the chance to participate. Sessions are typically 2 hours.
