Classroom Singing Resources for Teachers


Let's Get Singing!

A video series to help you fill your classroom with song

In each video, a different presenter will take your class through a physical and vocal warm-up before teaching you all 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 eight video resources here, and stay tuned for four more!

We're here to help you get your tamariki singing

Singing is such a great way to improve the wellbeing of your students. It promotes hauora, creativity, learning and self-confidence.

Group singing can help you to include - or to include more - tikanga Māori and reo organically throughout the day. It is also a way to acknowledge and engage meaningfully with the wide range of cultures and heritages, through the languages and songs of our diverse ākonga. The great thing is, singing is free - and every child has a voice! 

If you work in a primary or intermediate school or kura, and would like help getting your students singing, NZCF would love to help.
