School children in Dundee have been finding their voices with the help of a special musical programme.

Primary 3-aged pupils from schools from across the city have been discovering and tuning up their vocal skills by taking part in the Wee Sing project at the High School of Dundee.  

Organised by NYCoS, (Scotland’s youth singing organisation), the free initiative introduces children to singing through musical games, and uses interactive activities to help them learn about pitching, rhythm, beats and even sound production.   

The programme has proved highly popular since it launched four weeks ago, with almost 30 youngsters so far having seized the chance to take some fun first steps into singing and music.

And with spaces still available for the final session, which takes place at the school from 5pm to 6pm on Wednesday (27 March), Wee Sing Dundee Choir Director, and High School of Dundee music teacher, Elaine Stevenson, hopes that still more children will be able to take advantage of the initiative.

She said, “This is a superb opportunity for all Primary 3-aged children from across the region to come together and create music.

“The programme is completely free and has been designed to give a meaningful and stimulating singing experience to all youngsters.

“The sessions have been tremendously well received and it’s wonderful to see so many children singing, laughing, making music and learning in such a relaxed and supported environment.”
