Sing & Learn brings all the fun, magic and musical and educational expertise of Musiko Musika’s videos, classes and publications into this easy-to-use app with versions for use at home and in a nursery or school.
With songs and activities to support young children to develop strong speech and language skills and important personal, social and emotional skills all the materials and activities have been specially designed for 2- to 5-year-olds to have a great time making music whilst learning at the same time.

With great suggestions of simple and effective follow-on activities you can be sure your child will have a great time as their skills and development thrive.
And for teachers and early years practitioners choose “Sing Songo Practitioners” to access the content for use in your early years setting or school. This version is designed for professional use and is for registered users only.
Through our partner schools and nurseries in London, Hampshire and elsewhere we provide additional support, training and workshops for schools, nurseries, children and families. If you would like to know more about this part of our work then get in touch using the “Contacts” page on the app.
Musiko Musika was founded in 1998 by the musicians and educators Mauricio Venegas-Astorga and Rachel Pantin, with a mission to use world music as a tool to improve the access of children and young people to creative music making, and to support individuals and communities in valuing and sharing their cultural identity and heritage through music. We develop and deliver innovative projects and use our unique expertise to empower socially and economically disadvantaged children and young people, their families and their communities through music and cultural engagement. Songo is founded on the belief that early intervention in promoting successful language acquisition alongside social, emotional and personal development are essential to educational achievement and enabling children to become fully inclusive participants in society as they grow up. The Sing & Learn programme on which the Sing Songo app, videos and music are based was devised and developed by Musiko Musika in consultation with Speech and Language Specialist Helen Ayres and piloted over four years of project work reaching more than 8,000 children across the UK and in Chile. The Songo publications won a Finalist Award in the Children’s Educational Category, 2019 International Book Awards. “We loved the songs and the easy way in which children’s confidence and natural musical skills were nurtured and could blossom, underpinned by the exceptional level of educational, social and cultural understanding Mauricio, Rachel and the team have developed.” Baroness Gabrielle Bertin (Patron of Musiko Musika)
