An exciting 30-minute show with 7 songs, narrative poems, orchestral parts and powerpoint backdrop

A New Song Cycle for Schools!

“One Small Bird” has been performed to acclaim in two big venues with large choirs, full orchestra and jazz band. It is now available for schools to purchase as a package of downloadable piano and choir parts, backing tracks and links to online curriculum resources. Please contact us for details and licencing arrangements.

“The children’s understanding of the natural world and other places in the world outside of our inner-city environment has been greatly enhanced by this beautiful project which has allowed them to connect with nature in an immersive manner”.

Siobhan Barry, Assistant Headteacher, Tiverton Primary school.

“These songs have caught the children’s imaginations and given them new knowledge and appreciation of the amazing events happening in nature. 

It seems that music can be a powerful catalyst for learning about all sorts of things out of our usual orbit.”

Laura Parfitt, singing teacher, Weston Park Primary School, London

“The One Small Bird is absolutely beautiful – the orchestration, the opportunity for the children to sing in a choir with that beautiful orchestration. i think it is lovely that there are sections of the music where they are not singing, and just listen and wait for the cue to come back in. I think it is going to be a totally different experience from some of the other singing they have done.”

Graham Frost, Headteacher, Robert Ferguson Primary School, Carlisle

“The music makes me feel like I am the bird.”

Pupil, Clifton Primary School, Penrith
