This year we have been busier than ever before recording Christmas CDs in Primary Schools all over the UK. We have also recorded at a few Middle schools as well as some School Chamber Choirs.
Since mid October our sound engineers have travelled the length and breadth of the country (literally). Our recordings this year have taken us to London, Edinburgh, Cardiff, Birmingham, Newcastle and Cambridge and quite a few places in-between.
Most of the schools we have worked with this year have recorded a song per year group, or per class in the smaller schools. This ranges from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer to Away in a Manager and some more traditional carols. If your school has a recorder group, wind band or even rock band then we can record that too. One of the schools we worked with had some pupils return to the school who left the previous year and their ‘band’ recorded a couple of tracks. We aren’t quite sure whether they were strictly Christmas themed but the school seemed delighted to include this and it gave us an added challenge at the end of the day!
The choice of songs is entirely left to the school and it’s been nice this year to see quite a lot of traditional carols being recorded in amongst the popular and contemporary offerings.
With Christmas day nearly upon us, Record my School are already taking bookings for school recordings in 2018. If you havent recorded a CD or digital album before, then why not plan one for the New Year. As well as being a great fundraiser for your school or PTA it’s also a lot of fun and really gets your pupils involved in something a little different. What’s more it’s also looked on positively by Ofsted and other such institutions.
All that remains is for all of us here at Record my School to wish you and yours a very Happy Christmas.
