information SERVICE DETAILS

Seven songs about monsters: ugly ones, sneaky ones, snobby ones, hungry ones and monsters that only exist on the inside. This brand new songbook is by the celebrated team of Stephen Deazley (composer) and Matt Harvey (poet) and has been uniquely styled to appeal to young singers and to a family audience.

This songbook has been created for children aged 10-14 to be performed in large groups in one of two versions – with a professional ensemble or with a chamber orchestra. Love Music provides audio tracks of all the songs, lyric sheets, song sheets and vocal scores for teachers to use with their choirs, plus a professional development training session for all teachers and choir leaders involved in the project, and subsequent rehearsal sessions with Stephen Deazley in each school. On the performance day there is a final rehearsal with all the groups joining together to form one massed choir, alongside an ensemble of the highest quality professional musicians, followed by the performance.

The project is intended to inspire singing within schools and to support teachers in the delivery of exciting new opportunities and work for children. There are seven songs, and an eighth work for speaker, with a total performance duration of approximately 40 minutes. The recommended number of children involved in the project is between 120-180, although the piece can be performed with fewer participants.

There are a number of complementary creative projects and cross-curricular activities that work very well alongside the performance project.

A Little Book of Monsters is a national project and has been performed across the UK in collaboration with national and regional partners, venues, ensembles, orchestras and schools.

If you would like to know how you can perform A Little Book of Monsters with your school or choir, please get in touch.
