Sing Up

Posted by SingUp on Mar. 03, 2010

Sing Up is the National Singing Programme which aims to put singing at the heart of primary school-aged children’s lives. The programme includes an online resource and magazine to help primary school teachers and parents encourage children to sing every day. The initiative, championed by the composer and broadcaster Howard Goodall who is the National Singing Ambassador, was the result of research carried out by the Music Manifesto. It is supported by a ?40m government investment over four years and the collaboration of a consortium led by national charity Youth Music with advertising agency Abbott Mead Vickers, music publishers Faber Music and The Sage Gateshead. The combined expertise of these four organisations is bringing Sing Up to schools through a programme of workforce development for teachers, building an accessible singing resource and a public facing media campaign to highlight the role and contribution that singing can play in the school, the home and community.
