Daisy Martin Describes Why She Loves Singing

Posted on: February 8th 2013

You might have heard me sing in some of the school concerts… I have been singing for about 6 years and have just passed my grade 5, which I’m very pleased about as I practiced very hard on the pieces that I needed to learn. It also means that I got to do two music auditions for potential scholarships at schools I am sitting for at 11+.

Outside of school, I go to Finchley children’s music choir. I am in the intermediates but I have been asked to stay for the after class so I can prepare for going into the senior group, which is exciting because I’ll be learning lots of new things.

We have many concerts for regular events; for example at Christmas and Easter we would have a concert. The instructors choose a different theme for the songs each time like the sea and the sky or the Lion King and Christmas songs. There is a range of slow and fast songs but they are all very engaging. When we sang the Lion King songs, we had dance moves and we all had a go at playing the bongos! It was very different from a usual concert!

I have learnt a lot of things at choir like how to make words clear, as well as sight-reading and hand scales. One of the most exciting thing I have ever done there is to go to a sound recording with a group of other children from the choir.

I enjoy going to the choir just because of the experience, learning and doing new things and mostly doing what I love.
