As the nights now draw in and we roll forwards into autumn, our theme for this month’s This is Trinity resource is singing! As one of the most easily accessible routes into music, singing is often one of the earliest experiences young people will have in musical performance, whether through Whole Class Ensemble Teaching or performing in a school assembly, choir or production. This of course is the term when many schools will be starting to plan their Christmas productions and carol services for their school community to enjoy.  
Trinity provides a variety of opportunities for candidates to engage with singing: whether through our Singing syllabus, or Trinity Rock & Pop Vocals syllabus for those preferring a more modern approach; to Musical Theatre in our Drama syllabus and also through Arts Award with young people able to explore the history and career of singing artists as well as reflecting on their own learning through singing.

Teachers' Guide to Singing and singing for well-being 

In this month's update we are pleased to once again share a great resource for singing teachers, created by singing teachers from around the world.  Our Teachers' Guide to Singing offers direct advice and teaching tips about topics such as overcoming common challenges, effective warm-ups and choosing repertoire in singing.

We also feature a guest written blog from the Out of the Ark music team on why singing is good for pupil well-being, acting as a natural anti-depressant, boosting the immune system as well as a pupil's confidence and self-esteem.

Transforming your primary school through singing and Arts Award

Trinity have an exciting partnership with music organisation Out of the Ark, who provide exclusive Arts Award log books and support resources to help advisers, or for those people new to Arts Award, link the singing in their schools to their Arts Award journey. This blog focuses on the launch of their Sparkyard digital platform for schools, its links to Arts Award Discover and Explore, and the wider benefits of singing in primary schools.

Trinity's Musical Theatre offer

Educators and employers are familiar with Trinity’s reputation for stretching students and developing talent through an emphasis on the synthesis of singing, acting and dancing to achieve a fully integrated performance. This blog looks at how our Musical Theatre specification builds up the skills students will need for a successful career in musical theatre.
