YolanDa today rolls out her bespoke online music lesson plans, learning materials and videos for teachers, parents and pupils nationwide as she continues to promote music education in primary schools. Together with Sony Music UK’s Magic Star, kids creative-media agency SUPER and one of the world’s largest provider of online education resources, Twinkl.
The materials are now available to
download from the Twinkl website:
She launched the campaign last October live on The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 2 which saw over 1000 schools sign up almost instantly to the initiative before lockdown was announced.
Following the announcement of a national lockdown resulting in primary schools being forced to close for a minimum of six weeks, YolanDa says “the announcement of another lockdown has created a lot of anxiety and panic from children and their parents/guardians. We must stay positive! I have decided to release my YolanDa’s Band Jam album earlier than planned, as well as make my schools resource available to everyone, to give joy, escapism and support to many children and their parents around the country. We will overcome this pandemic together.”
The online materials will utilise the videos and music from the new album and a live concert uniting the children who have signed up to the Band Jam-themed lesson guides will be streamed online in February.
