Music for the Community

 
Welcome to our Music for the Community page! Since we can't take our music out to local nursing homes and libraries at the moment, we're inviting you in to enjoy it here instead. Each day you'll find a new student performance on this page, along with some info about the composer or instrument - and sometimes words too so you can sing along. 

If you're interested in a particular category, you can sort performances by student age, instrument, singalong music, composer and so on - click on the orange tags under the text. We hope you and your family will enjoy watching our students share their music! 

To have each week's videos and accompanying info sent to your inbox*, please subscribe via the orange button.

*Videos are delivered twice weekly; you can unsubscribe at any time, and we will never share or sell your info.

Day 31: Lollipop Man

Violinist age 8 plays "Lollipop Man" by Katherine and Hugh Colledge

 
Husband and wife team Kathy (b.1952) and Hugh (b.1945) Colledge both worked as instrumental music teachers in East London before moving to Norfolk in 1995. Their compositions and arrangements are a joint effort, with Kathy being the string instrument composer and Hugh writing the piano accompaniments.
 
This student learned "Lollipop Man" as part of her preparation for the Royal Conservatory external evaluation program. We’ve offered this program since 2014 for students who want to challenge themselves; we’ve seen enormous growth those taking part, and have been proud to see several of them honored with both Evaluation Center and State level “Certificates of Excellence” for the highest mark at their level.
