  • Enabling children to achieve their full musical potential

 

Sing With Us

The Pimlico Musical Foundation runs four different music programmes during term time, including after-school choirs on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Our programmes are open to children from all local primary schools. We also have an adult chorus that rehearses on Monday evenings.

Why Singing?

Singing in choirs is social – at our end of term concerts and weekly choir rehearsals, we encourage new friendships between both children and parents.

A child can progress quickly in singing, boosting their self-confidence – 80% of PMF children report increased confidence after participating in concerts and 90% want to participate in future concerts.

Singing enriches your child’s wider education – learning a challenging musical skill like sight-singing early-on is great for children’s cognitive development – not only will it promote their music learning, but also their achievements in other school subjects.

Singing is fun!

More Info

For those children who aren't so academic; this is something that they can possibly excel at and succeed in. Sometimes at school they're told 'you can't do this, you can't do that' whereas here is where they're able to succeed. I think that's especially important when music and sports are being cut at school.

Events

The Pimlico Musical Foundation runs several performances throughout the year. Typically, we have a concert at the end of each term, which involves all of our singing groups. Participants on some of our programmes perform more regularly.

Support Us

The Pimlico Musical Foundation receives no public funding and therefore relies completely on its generous supporters. Without your help we would not be able to do the work we do.

We need to fundraise over £150,000 every year to keep providing children in Pimlico with such important educational and musical opportunities. Find out how you can contribute by clicking the link below.

I love going home and seeing my child singing and swirling round the house. It's so nice to see her so happy.
