Music Changes Lives

  • 9000 Children taught per week
  • 214 Lessons
  • 20+ Employees
  • 2100 Resources

Weekly, across 27+ London schools, 9000 young learners encounter the transformative power of music in their lives.

Great music transforms schools.

However, in today’s educational landscape, music can easily be an afterthought. It doesn't have to be though.

Sing Education recruits, trains and resources the very best music teachers so that your school can have great music no matter your size, location or strategy. We provide a 360° wraparound provision which takes all the guesswork out of building and executing a rich and varied music programme. From curriculum design to PPA cover to absence management to inclusion and accessibility, our peripatetic music solution can be shaped to meet your needs.

Founded by Josh Cadman, Alice Cadman and Bert Routledge in 2014, Sing Education has been designed from the start to realise a unique vision - a more exciting and rewarding way to do primary school music education. The directors believed then, and still do, that music should be fun and exciting - enabling children to engage with it in the classroom, at home and out in the community.

What makes Sing Education so special?

Music education offers rich benefits for schools and pupils. The chance to embed school values and encourage community spirit. The chance to learn ancient folk melodies and perform for peers and parents.

Whatever your goals, Sing Education lessons deliver active music-making and dynamic learning. Our teachers hail from the best universities and conservatoires. Our bespoke curriculum bridges learning across terms and year groups. Our deep experience enables us to help shape evolving industry standards.

The voice is our primary instrument. It’s one of the key ways we communicate. It has the added benefit of being free, portable and infinitely malleable. For these reasons, voice is the cornerstone of Sing Education’s approach to teaching. Through the voice pupils are able to access all areas of musicianship.
