Songs That Teach Primary School Curriculum and Values!

We are two educators who write and produce original, curriculum-aligned songs & lesson materials that enhance, support & integrate classroom learning across key subject areas.

CURRICULUM KARAOKE™ is the latest, exciting, innovative offering, in our line of teaching resources for your classroom.

  • Not musical ~ NO worries!
  • Just download the MP4 song video and play on your classroom whiteboard or computer!
  • Students read / sing & learn along as the songs play and the lyrics display on the screen.
  • No need to print out lyrics, or create a power point, the MP4 does it all for you, making it easy for the whole class or the whole school, to follow the lyrics on any screen and sing along together.

Children love to sing, and years of experience in the field have taught us that they also learn what they sing!

To that end, our user-friendly, song-based teaching resources (targeted at ages 4-12) were created to support and integrate classroom learning across key areas of the school curriculum.

Developed primarily with the non-musical teacher in mind, they require absolutely no musical ability, it's as easy as clicking the play button - putting the power of song within the reach of all teachers.

Our original content-laden songs integrate -

  • Literacy
  • Social Studies/Society & Environment
  • Science & Technology
  • Life Skills & Values
  • Creative & Performance Arts
  • Health & Physical Development.

Package choices -

  • Kick starting discussion
  • Summarising and reinforcing content

'In terms of application to the classroom, and usability by teachers they rate a tick in every box.' ~ Brendan Hitchens, Teacher, Music In Action: A Magazine for Educators

Special Needs Testimonial:

'With three Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) children between the ages of 5-9, your Sing To Learn CD is tailor made for us.

It reinforces the values, social skills and curriculum that we are trying to teach, but more importantly, my boys LOVE it!'
