Let's Get Singing!

We've launched a video series to help teachers fill their classrooms with song.

In each video, a different presenter will lead a physical and vocal warm-up before teaching a song, step by step.

Every video comes with sheet music, a lyric video, a backing track, and helpful teacher notes, so you can keep your class singing and learning beyond your first video viewing.

Find the first three video resources here - and stay tuned for nine more!
