Children's Choirs
for those with learning difficulties


Accord Choirs
The children in our choirs come from all over Yorkshire to sing with each other. They learn a variety of songs, some with signs or musical activities. Staff are encouraged to sing and sign along too. The choirs are invited to participate in concerts throughout the year.

Sing in school and at home with the Accord choirs!  Click on the video below to play our songs for this term.

The first song above is Apple Tree, a song by Paul Partington in Sing for Pleasure Junior Songbook 13 (reproduced with permission).

This video and others were made possible by grants from LMEP (Leeds Music Education Partnership).
