Supporting the National Curriculum
Listening to a range of high quality live music is a key requirement of the national curriculum.
Singing is also cited, an important part of the Fidaddle experience. In a Fiddle concert we sing call and response songs and rounds
Recalling and repeating sounds and rhythms, both through singing and playing. We support this through call and response songs and rhythm games.
The virtuosity and sheer joy of our performances have, on regular occasions, inspired pupils to take up an instrument.
In Wales, traditional Welsh music is given particular prominence in the curriculum. This features in Fidaddle’s shows.
