Songs That Teach Primary School Curriculum and Values!
“In terms of application to the classroom, and usability by teachers (they) rate a tick in every box.” (Music In Action: A Magazine for Educators)

Everybody knows that children love to SING, and what’s more they LEARN and REMEMBER what they sing!
Singing is one of the most powerful and effective, yet under-utilized teaching tools, we have at our disposal.
