With many schools about to break up for half term this week, we get a short break from recording Christmas CDs in Primary Schools. But fear not, our sister company Recordings 4 Choirs is still out on the road and will be recording Choirs in Penzance and Kent, whilst all you lovely people are on half term! The second half of the Christmas term is generally our busiest time of year. From the end of October, once the majority of schools are back, we generally expect to be out recording pretty much every day until mid December.
This year is already our busiest year yet with an increase of 20% on the business we had last year. This is always pleasing but we are not about to rest on our laurels just yet. There are still a few days left when we could be out recording at your school in November.
Checking our availability
Why not make this year the year your school makes a fundraising Christmas CD. There’s still plenty of time and you can check our availability online from the comfort of your arm chair. In fact it’s so easy to make a booking with Recordings 4 Schools. Whilst we are always delighted to speak to people and you are very welcome to give us a call on 01225 302143 if you have any questions, we also appreciate that teachers are busy people.
The chances are you are reading this late at night perhaps looking for inspiration for your school during the next term or perhaps just looking into possible school fundraising ideas. So to make things simple, everything you need to know is right here on our website. To find out how much money you can raise for your school from sales of CDs or digital albums then have a look at our pricing page.
CDs or Selling online?
We are still producing tens of thousands of CDs a year for schools. But, nevertheless, the online route for audio distritbution is definitely gathering momentum. For now and indeed for the foreseeable future we intend to offer schools the best of both worlds.
We still produce CDs which means you can create artwork and make a physical product you can sell at Christmas fairs. But for all the teachers and parents who no longer have a CD player, all our CDs include free digital access to the tracks. So you can download the album just as you normally would.
Recordings 4 Schools can also offer you the chance to sell the album on our online shop. If you buy CDs as well there is no up front cost. Even if you choose to sell online only, there is just a small charge for the recording session and then plenty of scope for your school to make a considerable profit from album sales.
Booking your Christmas Recording
If you like the sound of all this and would like to give you school a chance to record a free CD this Christmas and then raise hundreds of pounds then you can simply get in touch via our contact form with your preferred date and our team will confirm everything in writing within 24 hours (probably sooner).
