NewYVC, based at Stratford Circus Arts Centre in east London, is much more than a youth community choir. It holds a space for a hugely diverse representation of people, where they can connect, learn and grow. They can feel recognised and supported in a safe, joyful environment.                                                                                                       
Supported by Youth Music since 2012, the choir and associated massed singing programme NewYVC Unite has gone from strength to strength, reaching over 600 young people aged 10-25 and developing a solid singing community in east London. Here, NewYVC Musical Director Jane Wheeler shares a bit about the vision for the programme.

As part of the Edmonton Glee project 9 teachers from local schools attended Arts Award Assessor training Discover and Explore. Feedback from staff was extremely positive and now pupils can be supported to achieve Arts Award Accreditation.

The Glee project, based on the popular TV series, gives children from Edmonton the opportunity to take part in Glee clubs where they are able to showcase and develop their singing and performance skills.  The fully inclusive clubs, run by inspirational tutors from Pineapple Performing Arts School (PPAS), focus on fun and raising aspirations.  There is also a competitive element where all Glee clubs are brought together at the end of the project to perform at a prestigious London theatre in a live show in front of a panel of judges.  Families of performers are invited to cheer them on and a range of prizes are awarded including PPAS scholarships, trophies and certificates.

Along these lines we are also organizing our next teachers-training-session to happen on Friday 31st of March 9.30am at WKMT Kensington. The topics to be talked about are mainly related to teaching / our work as piano tutors. We will work on understanding which resources to use with our most beginner students. We will also talk about how to frame lessons with both students and parents, as well as how to explain what to expect from our training itself.

Our SEN/D Youth Music Project Arc Music was selected by the Co-op to be included in a National Advertising campaign to be shown in Cinemas from Feb 2017 see a copy of it here.
