What do Children from Primary School Think?

Go Kid Music provides a bespoke service to schools unlike any other. Children's songwriter Al Start has been writing topic-based songs for primary schools and teaching them for over ten years. During this time we have built up a substantial collection of songs that have been sung by thousands of children in hundreds of schools across the UK and beyond.

Teachers and children alike benefit from our unique offer - well-written, catchy, contemporary songs that are great to sing and easy to learn combined with the topic-led subject matter. Children learn and retain key facts, concepts and vocabulary while enjoying a great song. All songs are taught using Makaton signing videos, just as Al does in person at school, as well as having the words as subtitles below the film.

Download the lyric & chord sheets. Many of our songs have a deeper dive - we call these Teaching Packs. These also contain sheet music (melody line, simple piano parts) and full production audio with backing track versions plus some suggested teaching notes to make your job even easier!

Your School Membership is designed to be cost-effective and affordable, with the added opportunity to raise some income back to your school. By passing on membership to your pupils and their families (also at a discount) you earn back £2 per pupil for your school every 6 months.

We believe in inclusive creative learning, and know that as a teacher you understand the different learning styles within your class. Add our songs to your topic, and you are adding another layer of learning that will stay with the children for years.

Our songs are ideal for assemblies and sharing performances. You can use them right out of the box with no musical background or knowledge, or you can delve deeper and use the additional instrument parts, harmonies and Makaton signing to create astoundingly good performance pieces.

See our free examples below and sign up today, with our 30 day money-back guarantee you have nothing to lose and everything to gain!

If you need us to invoice your school for the fee just get in touch! You can be on a rolling program paying monthly, twice a year or annually.

What other teachers say about Go Kid Music:

"I'm a peri music teacher teaching nursery up to yr 6 in 3 schools. I

only see each class for 30 to 45 mins a week and what's been so great

about the Go Kid Music stuff is that after I have been through the song

and taught it to the children, I can leave the split screen video

(fantastic resource) with the class teacher to practice without having

to sing it themselves - which is so scary for a lot of class teachers!

The songs are real ear-worms and the children pick them up really

quickly, but they are not flimsy and nursery rhymey, they sound like

proper cool songs and always have something a little bit cheeky in

there, which the kids love."

- Nicky Clark, Kent

Hello, I'm Al! I started Go Kid Music in 2015 because I believe we need more great age-appropriate songs for children and their families. I used to be a Play Coordinator for local authority, lecture at Brighton University and have trained in play, creative learning and child development. I studied music at Brighton Institute of Modern Music in 2003 and gained a distinction in Songwriting & Modern Composition. I have toured extensively and produce music and events for families. I teach singing in schools. We've made a short film to show you what we do at Go Kid Music and why children love it so much - watch it HERE! I hope you enjoy singing and listening to these songs, get in touch and let me know!"
