Sing Up

At Sing Up, we know that taking part in musical activity brings about positive benefits for individuals, communities, schools and society in general. Singing specifically supports learning, personal and social development, promotes health and well-being and bonds communities of people like no other activity.

Did you know that making music builds neural pathways in the brain in a way that no other activity does?

And singing in particular links up the most areas of the brain because of the involvement of language centres through the connection of music and lyrics. We hear a lot about the power of singing to help adults with neurological damage from stroke or dementia – this is amazing work.

At Sing Up, we’re primarily focussed on how music and singing build those neural pathways in young children. There’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to do this, and we want every child – without exception – to benefit from that. This is our starting point for all that we do…


Sing Up encourages and supports singing and musical learning with children and young people so that they:

  • Learn to sing well and enjoy singing
  • Develop musical skills and understanding
  • Experience the wider learning and developmental benefits that singing and music making provides
  • Experience long-term benefits to their health and well-being
  • We fulfil our mission by creating excellent, easy-to-use musical and learning resources and providing expert advice, which we make available in print and online.
  • Our intention is to inspire teachers (and others) to lead singing and teach music with confidence and skill, reduce their workload, give them quality resources that are easy to access, easy to use, engaging for pupils and really enjoyable to work with.

Sing Up Membership provides teachers and vocal leaders with an amazing online song bank of over 1,000 varied songs expertly arranged for young voices. There’s also a complete primary music curriculum including musicianship and instrumental resources, as well as student login functionality so students can access the resources at home.
