We did it – we inspired 25k children!

In January 2018 we set ourselves an ambitious target of inspring 25k children through our music programmes. And we are very excited to announce that we have reached and exceeded that target as we approach the end of 2018.

25,646 opportunities and counting this year…

Across all of our programmes and partnerships – from our multi award-winning Holiday Camps in the Midlands and London, to our Discovery Days and partnerships with Boston Tea Party and Town Hall Symphony Hall – we have achieved a special total of 25,646.

Needless to say we’re incredibly proud that we have managed this, just in time for the end of the year. It has not been easy!

But it has definitely been worth it. Along the way we have made many new friends and shared many new musical journeys.

 

We care, that’s why we do it

The Strings Club ethos is simple – we want all children to have the opportunity to be inspired by music.

We do what we do because we know the powerful impact music can have on a child’s development – from confidence to overall well-being to educational attainment. We know as, as teachers and parents, it can have a profound impact on a child’s life. That is why we dedicate so much time and energy to this cause.

The future – join us, run your own Strings Club

The future for The Strings Club is very exciting. After 6 years running in the West Midlands and London we are now franchising the business.

We are looking for like-minded people to join us – people who are passionate about music and want to run their own successful business.

Since 2012, The Strings Club has grown exponentially from one Holiday Camp of six children. Over the next ten years we want to become the UK’s biggest music education franchise company for primary aged children. Our mission is to ensure that all children in the UK have the opportunity to be inspired through music experiencing the benefits of a lifetime love of music.

If you’d like to find out more about this exciting opportunity take a look at our franchise pack on our website, email info@thestringsclub.org or give us a call on 0121 296 9204.

A Christmas playlist for you and your child

Listening to music is not only enjoyable but is also beneficial in developing many skills including coordination and self-confidence that will continue to be useful for your child throughout their lives.

Every month, we are here to help you inspire your child with some season-appropriate classical pieces.

This month, The Strings Club Head Office team has gathered for you the a selection of the best festive pieces of music alongside some fun facts and links to YouTube and Spotify to get us all in the mood for the mood for Christmas!

The Nutcracker

Did you know that despite it’s huge fame now, the original ballet was a commercial flop?! But Tchaikovsky’s 20 minute ‘suite’ extracted from The Nutcracker was, and always has been, hugely popular, and it has become one of his most famous compositions. Have a listen to the Waltz of the Flowers on Spotify or on YouTube.

Carol of the Bells

This Christmas classic might ring a lot of bells for all you listeners. Is that because you are a Home Alone fan or a Metallica fan?! Composed by Ukrainian composer Mykola Leontovych with lyrics from Peter J. Wilhousky, this song was originally a Ukranian folk chant but enjoys huge popularity appearing on films, TV shows and of course at major metal gigs across the world! Have a listen on Spotify and on YouTube.

Winter Wonderland

As if you weren’t feeling Christmassy enough already, here comes a giant of a Christmas tune. Written in 1934 Bernard (music) and. Smith (lyricist), it has been recorded by over 200 different artists. But we’re quite partial to the King of Cool, Dean Martin’s own rendition (with it being so cold out there it is probably more fitting too!). Have a listen on Spotify and on YouTube.

Your child’s development is key

What enables our award-winning Holiday Camps to stand proudly apart from other childcare providers is our passion and dedication in promoting the learning and development of all children in our care.

Through our carefully planned timetable that hosts a range of high quality engaging activities, we aim to guide the development of every child’s capabilities and skills on a daily basis to ensure that they truly benefit from our Ofsted registered Holiday Camps.

Our Four Key Areas of Development

Every Holiday Camp focuses on our “Four Key Areas of Development” that we believe are particularly crucial in igniting your child’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, for building their capacity to learn and form relationships. These include:

-music based skills and knowledge

-communication & language

-physical development

-personal, social and emotional development

You can see examples of how we have implemented this into every single part of our daily timetable in our Four Key Areas of Development in the Holiday Camp section of our website.

What Your Child Will Achieve With Us

We are really passionate about offering only the best in music education at our our Holiday Camps. For those children who are with us for the five-day experience, we aim for them to achieve a range of weekly learning objectives. Please note, for those children who come to us for a day or two, we aim for them to achieve a selection of the weekly learning objectives. 

You can see our Holiday Camp learning objectives on our website

We even take into account your child’s Next Steps, to really ensure that they continuously develop their skills with us as well as love their time with us and offer you, the parents, confidence in us and peace of mind.
