The first Jackdaws e-Song Club starts at 10am on Friday 15 May!
Our e-Piano Club, run by one of our volunteers, has been a huge success so we thought it might be something our singers would like to try as well.
Join for free by dialling in over Zoom every Friday morning at 10am for one hour. Meet and chat to other singers in a supportive, supervised setting, and, if you would like to (no requirement to do so!), sing a piece to the group. Give your practice a focus and carry on honing performance skills.
Sing unaccompanied or with a backing track. We can also put you in touch with one of our accompanists, Nigel Foster, if you would like to buy a backing track (costs start at £30 per song but may be more depending on length and complexity).
Please view our e-Club Guidance and Safeguarding before participating.
Our e-Song Club is free to attend, but if you would like to donate £5 to help keep Jackdaws going at the time of great uncertainty, you can do so on PayPal.

This is a time of great change for everyone, and the loss of routine and opportunity to engage with others creatively can be difficult to handle. We have adapted two of our projects to help people to access them remotely so you can still engage in creative activities.
Calling young people who have lost the routine of taking exams or may be missing their normal creative outlets – let Jackdaws support you to earn a qualification from quarantine! Arts Award is run by Trinity College, London which provides framework for young people to learn and develop their creativity and leadership skills; it is expressive, valuable, accessible for all and does not require any specialist skills.
Register for free and use the schemes of work to complete tasks in your own time. We will offer support and advice where we can. There is a fee of around £35 for the moderation process, run by Trinity College, to gain the final certification (this process is currently not available because of Covid-19 but there is no time limit on completing the award, so can be submitted when they are up and running again).

Our monthly Piano Club was a place where pianists of all abilities could come together, have coffee and play for each other in a relaxed environment. In place of this, we are starting an e-Piano Club online using Zoom.
Video conferencing will allow people from across the world to come together to play anything from a work in progress to a full piece. All you need is a tablet, smartphone or computer, and a piano. Details of the meeting will be sent out each week.
