Thank you for the thank you Miss Haines!
We received an awesome e-mail recently from a school that enjoyed our “I Go” songpack that we released back in September. We really were touched by these words and to know our music is having an impact far and wide. Thank you so much Miss Haines and all the kids at St Marys and St Peters CofE Primary School.
Hi Danny, I got in touch with you a little while ago after coming across ‘I Go’ quite by accident on Facebook. It was so nice to come across an upbeat song with such a great message that didn’t have that typical ‘school’ feel to it. At the end of last year I taught it to my Junior Choir – a great bunch of 55 Y3 & 4 children who have absolutely loved learning it. Just before Christmas I invited all their parents into our singing assembly where they performed the song in front of 400 other KS2 children. We made a video of the performance for you by way of saying thank you for inspiring us. The children could not have enjoyed learning the song more! Every rehearsal has left us all beaming and so many members of staff walking past the hall have stopped in their tracks to listen to the choir singing your song. Here’s the Dropbox link – I hope you’re able to view it ok. As a music teacher, song-writer and performer myself, I must say that teaching this song has been one of the most uplifting things I’ve done in my 11 years of teaching. ‘I Go’ is so well-written and that backing track that just grooves!!! So thank you for all you have done and are doing to make music in schools such a joy. You have had the children of St Mary’s & St Peter’s singing with their hearts as well as their voices.
