Sing and Learn is a unique programme using songs, rhythmic games and other musical and linguistics activities to enable the development of strong speech and language skills and other areas of the curriculum through music from early years upwards. More than 150 teachers and early years practitioners have been trained in the UK and Chile to deliver the programme.

Training & Resources
Developed in collaboration with the speech-language specialist Helen Ayres, we offer workshops and training for early years practitioners and teachers as well as books, CDs and video.
Our two publications, published by Victorina Press are:
Songo (for Children & Families)
A CD of 20 fabulous songs for early years with a beautifully illustrated book for families to sing and enjoy the songs at home, extending the benefits of the project in a way that the whole family can enjoy.
Songo (for Children, Early Years Settings & Practitioners)
An extensive and invaluable resource for anyone working with children at early years founded on many years of specialist development of Musiko Musika’s work with young children and nursery practitioners. Each song has a double-page spread of highly accessible and relevant activities to support and develop strong speech and language skills, PSED and other key areas of early years development. The progression of musical skills flows naturally through the book and links are made throughout to the Early Years Framework.
