Recording for Schools
Since our inception in 1987, The Classical Recording Company has regarded CD production for schools as an important part of our services and we have run many projects for both private and state schools at primary and secondary level.
Often such recordings will include repertoire designed to reflect the wide range of musical activities within the school. Typical sessions might include choral and orchestral repertoire together with chamber music, jazz, readings, drama and even the school pop group - we will arrive equipped for all eventualities!
Whilst we always aim to get the best possible performance during the sessions, we also understand the need for the recording to be a positive learning experience for the students (and staff!) and hope that all participants will enjoy the process, whatever their standard. We also encourage the widest possible participation with the whole school involved in some way or another – this might mean anything from singing the “school song” to a school-wide competition to design the CD cover – in the end the wider the involvement the more CDs will be sold.
School CDs are not only for sale to parents and friends but should also be seen as an important marketing tool for the school. To this end we offer a unique School CD-Extra which, as well as conventional audio, can contain a complete electronic copy of the school’s prospectus.
