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
- 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.
