Summary:
The UK's National Ambassador for Singing, Howard Goodall, presents this programme, which looks at how singing is used in everyday learning in rural and urban schools in South Africa. Unlike children in the UK, South African children are renowned for their love of singing. Howard admires what he sees in South Africa; it also gives him insights he can bring back with him to the UK. He chooses to visit three state primary schools in KwaZulu-Natal province, in very different situations: Padayachee has no specialist singing teachers, Addington brings one in once a week and Manor Gardens employs a full-time singing teacher. Howard discovers that all the schools use song across the curriculum, and that it really doesn't matter if teacher or pupil can sing well or not. He also finds that children attend primary until they are 14, so he will be able to look at changes in attitude to singing as adolescence approaches, especially in boys.
