About Derby Community Signing Choir

Signed singing is not only for deaf people though, when hearing people see our performances, they are spellbound by the beauty of the story told with our hands, it takes the story of a song to a whole different level. As a general rule, choir members are taught a song from a deaf perspective, first learning the beat/rhythm with the teacher mouthing the words, and without any music playing. This is what seeing someone sing a song for the first time is like for a deaf person, especially one who has little or no concept of sound. Along with a couple of additional simple teaching and learning tools, this process is repeated a few times to give students the feel of the song/music, before moving onto the next stage of learning and appreciating. The choir are available to perform at any events county wide, just contact us via our email address.
