Taylor High School Expressive Arts Showcase June 2023

The Expressive Arts faculty would like to cordially invite you to our first Expressive Arts Showcase on Thursday 15th June in the Theatre.  

Whilst viewing and bidding on Art and Photography work in a silent auction, you will be served canapes made by pupils from the Home Economics department and enjoy Music items from our wonderful musicians at Taylor High School. The Barista bar will be in full swing alongside a tuck shop to purchase some refreshments. Our raffle hamper is also looking like it will be full of fancy goodies for a lucky winner. If you can’t make it along for the main event in the evening, don’t despair, the silent auction begins at 4 pm.

VOCAL COACHING with Siobhan McCauley

We have been very lucky to secure Siobhan McCauley for three 2-hour Future Friday sessions, to support our SQA singers in their final preparations for their SQA Music practical exam next week. This included learners from S4, S5 & S6 sitting National 5, Higher & Advanced Higher Music. The singers have been focussing on mood & character, breathing techniques, projection and fundamentally building confidence for their exam performance.

Siobhan McAuley has been immersed in musical performance from an early age. At the age of five she joined the Glasgow Youth Choir singing as a soloist and touring throughout Europe. Since graduating from the RSAMD (now Royal Conservatoire of Scotland) Siobhan has continued to perform solo in operas, recitals and nationwide competitions. Highlights she recalls include playing principal cast roles in Mozart’s Magic Flute and Marriage of Figaro, Puccini’s La Bohème, Berlioz’s Nativity and Faure’s Requiem. More recently Siobhan has led the cast of London’s West End hit show The Lion King building up a reputation as one of the UK’s leading vocal coaches. Siobhan is the founder and creative director of the Ayrshire Infinity Choir.

Learn Pipe Band Snare or Tenor Drumming

S1 were treated to a mini pipe band performance during assembly this morning from Mrs. Muir (acting Head of Expressive Arts), Mr. Geddes (Maths Teacher) and Mr. Nelson (snare drumming instructor) from the North Lanarkshire Schools Pipe Band this morning to promote snare & tenor drumming lessons.
