Hull schoolchildren will experience the joy of singing and improve their learning through music during October 2017, as part of the British Council’s World Voice residency in more than 50 schools in England. Nearly 400 pupils from 12 schools are taking part in Hull.
The project helps children explore identity and culture, supported by Arts Council England and is working with Hull Music Service.
Up to 20 World Voice Master Trainers from around the world will travel to the UK to collaborate with local teachers, music educators and UK-based World Voice trainers. The international visitors will run workshops in schools and communities, sharing musical knowledge and experience of music education with children and teachers.
The British Council aims to support all young people in the UK to have international and intercultural experiences. The World Voice programme is a key programme in this effort to contribute to an internationally inspired and globally connected UK and a more secure, inclusive and prosperous world.
