As a long time music educator as well as songwriter and performer, I am passionate about learning opportunities. My songs are already in use as teaching material at Berklee College of Music, USA, and I am now embarking on a new initiative to provide backing tracks for school children, community groups and amateur choirs, free of charge, with lesson plans.and other resources.
I am keen to expand this initiative in the future and trying to form a committee to help me develop it effectively. Any school teachers, choir leaders, community, organisation or religious leaders wanting to discuss this further, or to inspect my income sources and donations regarding these tracks, please contact me at email@example.com.
Released 1 November 2019 Music and lyrics by Sue McCreeth Featuring Ian Salmon and Mike Varty Produced by Infinite Sunday
“If you’ve heard any of Sue McCreeth’s critically acclaimed albums, such as ‘Look Back and Love’ (2017), you will know that she has a rare talent for moulding the tone of her voice to match the atmosphere and message of a song. Cool and misty, warm and emotional, whatever the song the voice naturally takes on its colouring.
Save the Children Now is a song with a simple but increasingly serious message. The melody is also simple, but memorable. Sue, who studied at the prestigious Berklee Music College in Boston, takes particular care over not only the lyrics and melodies of her songs, but also their underlying harmonies - less obvious but just as important, The total effect, with subtle accompaniment from piano, strings and choir, added to the touch of urgency in Sue’s clear voice, is irresistible.”
Dave Gelly, Music Critic for The Observer newspaper
The following resources are available to work with three of my songs:
Happy Christmas Love Has Come
Save the Children Now
There is no charge for playing or downloading any of the tracks or resources from this page.
If teachers need further detail in these lesson plans, or further guidance and suggestions about any of the wide and varied activities I have suggested, I will be happy to write that up, free of charge, so that schools and groups have an optimum chance of accessing this initiative and working with me to support the charities that benefit from these tracks.
