About the session...


Spectrum Songs is a music-focused session and is all about learning songs through singing, signing, movement and playing instruments.


Each session provides an opportunity to play handheld musical instruments, such as shakers, tambourines and ukuleles as well as learn a variety of songs. Spectrum Songs is great for those who enjoy making sounds and/or singing and is an opportunity to have a go at learning different aspects of music, including pitch and rhythm.


The sessions are all about developing musical skills, making friends and having fun! 

Each half-term we focus on a different musical element to work on, and participants build upon different skills each week. Each half-term we will have one main song and we will learn elements of this each week.  

This class is aimed at those with a lower level of support needs and who thrive in more structured settings.


We have non-speaking performers who engage well in this club -  adaptations are made so everyone access the fun of Spectrum Songs!
