A: We are constantly working towards making the website faster for all types of internet connections in all browsers.
Some versions of Internet Explorer, and some high-security connections (like in schools, for example) have controls that block some images and processes on our website that helps it to work quickly.
If you are at school, you might find that your school network security is blocking features of the website (such as cookies) that enable you to view and download songs and resources. In this case, please talk to your IT co-ordinator about setting your school network to ‘allow all content’ from the Sing Up website.
Our website runs fastest in Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer 8/9 or Safari (for Mac users). Please note that the Sing Up website is incompatible with most versions of the AOL browser.

A: There are literally hundreds of songs in our Song Bank. We want you to have easy access to the songs that you feel are relevant to your lessons - or even those you personally like!
The Favourites allow you to save all the material related to a song directly to your computer for use in the classroom. Once you have searched and found the required song simply add a song to your library by clicking on the Add to Favourites icon.
If you are the first person to save a song which is not in the school's favourites, the song will automatically be added to the school's favourites, allowing you to share with your colleagues.

A: Sing and Share is a new way to use Sing Up in your classroom. It’s made of two different areas:
Pure Solo: record your class singing along to their favourite songs, and share the recording by email or burn to a CD.
Lucky Voice: a karaoke-style player where you can build playlists and sing along to backing tracks of your choice.
Remember that you have to be logged in to see the Sing and Share button in the Song Bank!
A: Every song in the Song Bank has a melody line version of the score, which shows the lyrics, melody line and chord symbols of the song.
We’ve provided these instead of lyric sheets, as you can use them in exactly the same way, whilst also following the rise and fall of the melody line against the lyrics as you sing.
You can also display the lyrics in whiteboard mode.
A: It's worth checking that your volume and sound settings are set so that you can hear sounds from other websites or CDs. If you still can’t hear the songs, it might be because you need the latest version of Adobe Flash Player, and even a browser upgrade. Adobe Flash Player is free and safe to download, and you can find it here.
