Although Covid restrictions are slowly being lifted, we’ve decided that we are going to continue to offer online sessions to bring families fun, learning and a regular routine via Zoom as well as our sessions for schools and nurseries and events for young people, parents, carers and professionals.

Here is what is currently on offer online with us:

Ad-Hoc Webinars (available for anyone in the UK to attend)

During each term, we will be running some ad-hoc webinars (a bit like Tracy’s Tues & Thursday sessions during lockdown) so that you can still join in LIVE from home.

These sessions will feature an eclectic mix of rhymes, action songs and a few pop songs so that there’s something for everyone.

These sessions are only £3.50 PAYG and are run in webinar format. It’s like your very own live Singing Hands session on your TV or your chosen device!

Each session will have a different set of songs and activities.  We will post on social media some ideas of props for you to get together for that day’s class so that you can replicate the experience of handling our wonderful multi-sensory props in your home.

Fortnightly Webinars for Schools and Colleges (Thursdays) 9.45am and 2pm

We offer fortnightly LIVE Zoom webinars for Schools to join – the 9.45am session features a mixed repertoire of Makaton-signed rhymes/action songs & a few pop/show tune-style songs. This session will be suitable for early years/Primary pupils.

The 2pm session features a mix of pop songs, film songs and show tunes and is aimed at secondary pupils and older learners / college students.

Tickets to join the webinar are £15 + VAT (£18) and will allow you 5 class/device log-ins. If you need more log-ins for the session, you just need to purchase extra tickets for each additional 5 log-ins. We will also record the LIVE sessions should you not be able to attend or if you want to watch again (and again!).   All registrants will receive this recording and it will be available to stream for 7 days following on from the LIVE show.

Wednesdays – Baby / Toddler Classes (Toddlers 9.45am / Babies 11am)

We LOVE our online classes so we are going to continue offering a special weekly Toddler class and a Baby signing class on Zoom.   This will follow exactly the same syllabus as our face-to-face 40 minute classes.  Geography no longer prohibits you from learning with us! Unlike our Tue/Thur webinars, we run these sessions in Zoom meeting format so that you can see us, we can see you and the little ones can all see each other.

Each Wednesday morning session will feature a different range of songs & activities and we’ll email you prior to the session with ideas of props and toys to get together to replicate the multi-sensory elements of our usual classes. These sessions can only been booked on a termly basis at £75.00, per household, per term. To book you and your little ones onto these sessions, click here.

The Autumn 2021 term will start Wed 22nd September.

Singing Hands Signing Choir

We have our fabulous signing choir here in Twickenham but we are going to continue with our monthly Makaton Choir sessions so that anyone in the UK can attend and learn with us!   The choir sessions last one hour and we’ll be going through and teaching the signs for two new Pop songs each session.  We have plans for various different choirs (in the long term) but for time being, this will be an all-comers, inclusive choir.  It is open to anyone 8+, for those with/without additional needs, parents, carers, teachers, TAs – anyone!

These sessions are currently PAYG. The sessions will take place the first weekend of every month.  Price per session £6.50.

Pop Parties (Ad-hoc afternoon sessions)

As our live concerts are not running for the foreseeable future, we’ve created some more online fun for older children and young adults. These are 1 hour sessions featuring pop songs from our Pop DVD and CarPark Karaoke series all presented via Zoom meeting. That means you can see us, we can see you and we can all see each other having a fab boogie in our houses! Grab some silly headgear, a wig, funny glasses, some colourful scarves, pom poms and something twinkly/flashing to finish. We’ll have a blast!

Wine & Sign Events (Ad-hoc Friday Night sessions) 8pm

And last but not least, something for the parents, carers and professionals – let’s have a kitchen disco! These events were the lockdown hit of 2020 and will continue indefinitely post-Covid too 🙂

This Zoom party promises to be your #BestNightOutIn featuring just over an hour of Makaton signing, singing, wine & dancing. We create a fab playlist of 70s/80s/90s/00s music – think Guilty Pleasures/Wedding Disco type stuff.  We don’t run the session like a choir – so we won’t be going through and teaching you the whole song line by line as that’ll take too long per song and won’t make it feel like quite like a party.   We aim to teach you the key signs for each chorus so that you can feel free to get dancing during your verses and then we’ll all join up and sign the choruses.  These sessions were the highlight of our lockdown calendar and loads of you asked us to continue this term so please join us!
