Shaping Lives for Better

From rural schools to urban four-form-entries, Yorkshire primaries educate nearly half a million children each year. Just the kind of challenge Sing Education was born to meet.

From our bespoke curriculum and excellent teaching to our deep classroom experience and 360° wraparound support, we know education. And one size never fits all.

That's why we partnered with the distinguished Richard Shephard Music Foundation to offer tailored music solutions to primary schools across Yorkshire.

The design suggests motion and fluidity, with the lines converging at a point on the left and spreading out as they move rightward, giving a sense of expansion or release.

Music Changes Lives

Quick. Your first memory of school music? Christmas show Year 3? Guitar solo Year 6?

If music was key to your early academics and you loved it, you likely had a skilled teacher plus dynamic, engaging lessons. Just like ours.

But now you’re a headteacher shaping music at your own school. Lots of decisions.

Adding/replacing staff? Need multi-school experience, resources and PPA cover flexibility? If yes, Sing Education has a music strategy for you

New, Inspirational Model for Music

Music education is crucially important to help children achieve their full intellectual, social and creative potential. It benefits learning, self-confidence, mood and well-being. Although Ofsted is showing renewed interest in primary school music, teachers often lack the necessary resources, time or backing to deliver inspiring music opportunities. 
 
Advancing the aims of the National Curriculum for Music and focusing on areas of deprivation, the partnership between Sing Education and the Richard Shephard Music Foundation brings world-class music into the lives of primary school children through classroom lessons, workshops and performance opportunities.
