How your child will benefit

Through singing and games and an exciting range of performances your child will have fun, gain confidence, improve their speech and language, memory, coordination and their ability to work as part of a team. The children learn to sing pop, Disney, musicals and songs from around the world and there are opportunities to sing solos. The choir is for fun, but we do like to sing well, so the children will make an excellent start at acquiring the choral skills that they will need for the rest of their school and adult lives (such as good pitching and harmonising). Performances have included regular family Primrose Hill Choirs concerts, Camden market under a Christmas tree (see below), the South Bank Centre's Chorus festival and Voices Now at the Roundhouse. The group is run by the prize-winning local conductor and singing teacher Matthew Watts, who is experienced at working with children both in and out of schools. See Press above.
