The Notivate Singer/Songwriter Programme is a creative music course for children aged 9 – 13 years, in which they write, rehearse, perform and record their own songs. Notivate enables children to express themselves… to explore their feelings… and perhaps try something for the first time. It offers children the chance to feel better about themselves and is about music, but is more about “me”.
The programme consists of six fun, practical sessions, that encourage children to realise their creative potential and expand their emotional awareness. Based on six years’ experience of working with over 1000 children, Notivate is designed to increase self-esteem, willingness to take creative risks and confidence to learn.
“The whole project was a resounding success.” (Head Teacher)
“We have been so impressed with the whole package.” (SENCo)
“Very successful in captivating and motivating the children.” (Children’s Fund)
“Brilliantly fantastico!” (Pupil)
Children are commissioned to write, rehearse, perform and record their own songs. All participants receive a workbook, a specially prepared backing track CDs and spend the day in the recording studio. The final session is a celebration of the participants’ achievements, at which each child receives a certificate and CD of their work.
The process of writing, rehearsing, performing and recording a song encompasses many musical and non-musical aspects of the school curriculum. With the addition of a few carefully selected activities to enrich this process, children have the chance to exploit not only its educational, but also its therapeutic benefits, including increased self-esteem, willingness to take creative risks and confidence to learn.
