Abstract

This report presents findings from research carried out with seven Chorister Outreach Projects from Cathedrals across England as part of the Choir School Association's Chorister Outreach Programme (COP). In total, data were collected from fifteen Primary Schools working with these Chorister Outreach Projects. This data set was supplemented by similar teaching and learning of singing data from an additional five (non-COP) Primary Schools who were working with aspects of the SingUp Programme. In total, 48 singing sessions were observed, of which 28 (58.3%) were in COP schools and 20 (41.7%) in non-COP schools. Overall, the observation data on learning and teaching of singing within and outside the COP school sessions demonstrate that high 'quality' experiences can be found in any school context, whether urban or rural, with older or younger children, ethnically diverse or not, and whether led by musical specialists or generalists.
