The Megasound Project Wednesday afternoons on Zoom

This term at the Megasound Singing Project we've had a lot of fun together and learnt some great songs about the ocean, finding our voice and many more. Some of the singers have also written their very own original and brilliant group song, and we've all been thinking about vocal technique and communication. It wouldn't be Megasound though without some chat, jokes, quizzes and games. One of our favourite games this term has been a song categories game - how many songs can you think of about the weather...? 

We're taking a break over the summer, but we'll be back in September. Why not give it a try? There's a warm welcome for anyone new who'd like to join us. 

The Voice Project has been renamed 'The Megasound Project' and offers an opportunity for singers of ALL school ages to come together every Wednesday during term time, to experience for themselves the joy singing has to offer in a supportive, safe and fun online environment.  It has been set up, with the help and support of Fairmilehead Parish Church, for young people between the ages of  5 and 18 (P1-S6). There are no auditions, no need to read music and it is open to anyone who wants to come along and find their voice!  We sing a mix of styles of songs – so hopefully there's something to suit everyone. It is being led by Melissa Humphreys, who also directs the Buckstone Community Choir.
 
Melissa says - "What a great start we've had at the Megasound Project! Highlights have included singing sea shanties, pop songs, songs from films and much more. We've also been thinking about how we warm up our voices and how to sing really well. We made a brilliant imaginary popcorn machine with all the sounds and rhythms we could make together. There's always time for some fun games too, such as our two props guess the pops and our guess that sound game, as well as a game of beetle! Our older singers have embarked on an exciting songwriting project, so do watch this space..." 

The Megasound Team look forward to seeing everyone again after the Easter break.  New people always welcome too - why not give it a try!

Any child from Primary One upwards can join us, currently online, and sing together.     The times are as follows:
 
P1 - P3 meet from 3.45 - 4.15pm
P4 to P7 meet from 4.20 - 4.50pm
S1 to S6 meet from 5 - 5.45 pm
 
All children are welcome.  No church connection needed.  We will meet on Zoom until restrictions permit us to return to the church halls. 
 
 
If you'd like your child to be part of the Project, or you'd like to know more, then please contact Melissa Humphreys at melissafhpc@gmail.com
