Great Singing and Great Signing

As part its Great Singing, Great Signing project, and together with deaf musician Paul Whittaker OBE, Yorkshire Youth and Music have produced a series of signed songs, available to learn online completely FREE of charge.

Great Singing, Great Signing also aims to start and run two new singing and signing ensembles in areas of Yorkshire where there is currently no singing and signing activity. The project involves a series of singing and signing sessions with children accompanied by Paul , his interpreter and one or two trainee musicians / practitioners. Training for these practitioners consists of first-hand shadowing and delivery at ensemble sessions, masterclass visits, workshops by Paul to share good practice and a series of signed song resource videos.

Yorkshire Youth & Music is a community music education charity working across the whole of Yorkshire. They hold Youth Music funding and make projects that provide musical opportunities for children and young people in challenging circumstances.
