Get Singing for BBC Music Day!

BBC Music Day is working with Sing Up to unite schools across the nations to sing on Thursday, 26 September 2019.

Get Singing for BBC Music Day!

Get Singing is the initiative to encourage primary school children around the UK to sing together in playgrounds, assemblies and lessons on BBC Music Day - Thursday Sept 26th.

Last year a thousand schools took part, and we’re aiming to double that reach in 2019. This year the collaboration involves BBC Education’s Bring the Noise, Young Voices, Sing Up, Ex Cathedra’s Singing Playgrounds, Chiltern Music Therapy, Music Action International and BBC Ten Pieces.

The premise is simple. The BBC Music Day website will host an accessible video resource for teachers to play out on the day. This requires no advance preparation and no expert knowledge, so all schools can be involved with a simple vocal exercise to get children singing. In 2018, this united children across the UK and resulted in broadcasts on BBC Breakfast, CBBC and Radio 3.

BBC Music Day celebrates the power of music to change lives with events across the UK and broadcasts on TV, Radio and digital. The fifth BBC Music Day will take place on Thursday September 26th with events and broadcasts across the week. The centrepiece for this year’s activity is a celebration of music and wellbeing; the power of music to inspire, to bring us together and make a positive impact.

Visit the BBC's website to sign up and get the warm-up and receive your free BBC Music Day certificate.

We'll also be curating a list of songs and resources to help you celebrate, so stay tuned!
