Snaps in Schools is the Snaps Ensemble’s flagship project – a series of concerts which brings live music into primary schools in the form of interactive performances, suitable for either KS1 or KS2.
Each concert, as well as providing an engaging, entertaining musical experience for young audiences, also supports the National Curriculum‘s requirements that children learn to ‘use their voices expressively’ (KS1), ‘listen with attention to detail and recall sounds’ (KS2), and listen with ‘concentration and understanding to a range of high-quality live music’ (both).
The KS1 concert, The Magic of Music, focusses on identifying and exploring the ways children can engage with music – listening, playing, singing, dancing – while the KS2 concert, What’s Music All About? encourages children to develop an understanding of the programmatic capabilities of music, exploring how it may be used to tell stories. Both are full of opportunities for children to engage with the music, interact with the musicians, and enjoy the experience of live music.
