Join our pool of creative contributors

We are always looking for talented creatives and would love to hear from you

At Sing Up, we love to collaborate with brilliant people. We are keen to broaden the pool of creative contributors that we work with to create exciting, inspiring, and diverse new material for publication in our online Song Bank and website. 

We are particularly interested in exploring opportunities with people who have the following experiences and skills:

Songwriters and Composers | Educational writers | Producers and Engineers | Vocal artists 

We want to represent a broader range of musical genres than we do currently by collaborating with creative people that reflect the social and cultural diversity of our community – schools, children and young people, school staff, choirs, and singers.

We are looking for talented people from a range of different backgrounds, musical traditions, and/or who have a range of different musical interests and experiences. We are particularly interested to hear from individuals from under represented groups in music educaiton: working class, those who identify as disabled, Black or from the global majority, and who may not have come through traditional music education routes. First and foremost, you’ll be passionate about education and the power of music to transform young people’s lives.

What we are looking for

  • Commitment to your craft – whether you are an educator, a songwriter, a lyricist, a producer
  • Talent
  • Enthusiasm
  • Openess and collaborative mindset
  • An awareness, understanding, and commitment to Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Access


Skills, knowledge, and experience

We're interested in the following but they aren't a requirement:

  • Experience of working directly with young people (in a range of settings)
  • Knowledge of music education
  • Experience of creating teaching materials (audio/video/written)
  • If you’re a songwriter/composer, experience of writing specifically for young people (voices or instruments | any or all ages 5 to 18)

There’s no requirement to have been published previously, to work with notation, to write in any particular style, and no requirement to have reached a certain level of formal music education.

How to express your interest

If you are interested to explore opportunities to work together, we would look forward to having a chat with you.

We would love to hear about you and your experiences and what you might be interested in working on with us. To help us to get a feel for your style and work to date, we would be excited to receive a small sample of your previous work in your preferred format, for example, recordings, video, showreel, PDFs, link to online samples of work/portfolio, lyrics etc.

We’re looking forward to hearing from you via email on [email protected], or if you're not too shy, we do love a video or voice note too.

When submitting your application, we process your personal data in accordance with our Recruitment Privacy Notice.

About Us

We are an award-winning organisation which makes transformative change happen in schools to enhance children’s development and learning through the power of music and singing. Developed by teachers and experts, we have been supporting schools’ singing and music making for fifteen years, and today Sing Up’s digital platform is used and loved by teachers and pupils around the world.

We are passionate about giving all children and young people opportunities to sing and make music – for personal enjoyment, to support learning and to help them to develop lasting tools to express themselves with confidence and creativity.

We also believe in the intrinsic value of music - both educationally and financially. This means that when we are commissioning, creating & sharing music resources, we focus on the development of musicianship skills first and foremost, and we make sure that songwriters, composers, arrangers and rights holders are paid appropriately.
