Presenter and composer Howard Goodall gives tips on how best to encourage Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 students, to sing using chart songs.
Howard speaks to Steve Cook from Formby High School, Caroline Gale from Guildford County School and Nick Bowers Broadbent from St Bonaventures Boys in Newham, feature as the experienced practitioners in this video.
Simple tips such as listening to your students and trying to arrange songs they know from the charts proves effective, as well as attracting young singers to your choir, even if not every song they ask works.
At Guildford County, Caroline Gale's Year 9 really enjoy the Jason Mraz song, I'm Yours, while at Formby High School, Jenny Sherwood's junior choir are enjoying singing her arrangement of S Club 7s Bring The House Down.
