Voices Around The World is a free project with a mission to help young people everywhere work together musically to Sing Out! Speak Out! And Change The World! This year the youngsters involved will be part of making an international release of the song 'Listen To Us' written especially for the project by Laurie Lewin. The project this year also involves a video making dimension - to record students' work on the song, their views about the future of the world and to show off their great dancing moves! Youth groups, schools and individuals are all welcome to participate. The song and videos will be released in June 2015.
You need to have sent us any vocal recording audio files (mp3/wav/aif) of your singing, any videos files and any picture files by this date to ensure that your youngsters are definitely included in the final mix of the song/video.
The Main Components of the 'Listen To Us!' Project
Rehearsing, recording and submitting vocals to be part of the international recording
Making and submitting a 20-30 second of your students presenting their views about the vital actions needed to change the world
Making and submitting a short video of your students' dance sequence to go with 'Listen To Us!'
Linking with/adopting/supporting a school/schools to work with you on the singing part of the project
Making and submitting short video clips/photos of your students rehearsing, recording and/or performing the music
Using the free 'Listen To Us' cross curricular teaching modules
Hopefully you will manage to cover all six areas, but we understand some schools may only be able to involve themselves in some aspects. Naturally we especially want you to be involved in the main core activity - sending in your vocals to be part of the international recording.
We are especially grateful to colleagues at the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) who have written a full series of teaching modules to to go with this year's project. These resources, as with all other Voices Around The World resources are available to you to download free of charge. We are sure that many of you will have great times this academic year working on these materials. To download the IPC Listen To Us teaching modules click here
