Young poets and composers - make friends and make songs!


T
he Worldwide Song Project
is looking out for authors, artists and composers aged 8 - 18!
Maybe you're a parent with a gifted youngster in your family.
Maybe you're a teacher with gifted youngsters in your class.


Here are Tristan poet Kelly Swain and UK composer George Winter ...


... and here are Kelly's friends, singing one of her songs on the slopes of the island's active volcano!
If so, send the Project their poems^ or tell us about their musical or artistic gifts. The Project's young composers turn the poems into songs, and these reach families and schools by email.

The Project rewards its keenest contributors by publishing their songs and artwork in attractive books. The pages left and below are from Songs for Sark (in the Channel Isles).
There's nothing to pay - in fact the Project provides free music software! The songs appear on computer screens and because the notes light up as they play, youngsters can follow and learn their songs, even without a musical adult!

The Project brings a host of other benefits, such as

  • pen friends *
  • lots of fun and encouragement!
  • gifts of musical instruments
  • public performances
  • young people coming together in this troubled world
  • the chance to put your school or community on the world stage. This happened for the South Atlantic island of Tristan da Cunha in 2012 when Queen Elizabeth II recognised the islanders' support for the Project by allowing them to issue a set of Song Project stamps.



Another of Kelly's poems was set by UK teenage composer Lauren Boydell. Click to hear a piano arrangement.
