Songs For EVERY Singing School focuses on the experience of singing itself and features some of Mark and Helen Johnson's finest songs to date. With rounds, part-singing and different styles for children to enjoy, this fantastic range of school songs is ideal for singing in the classroom as well as assemblies.
Sing when you're happy, sing when you're sad; sing when you're laughing, sing though it's mad.... Just sing!
About The NEW Songs For EVERY series
The Songs For EVERY Series was created by Out of the Ark Music co-founders Mark & Helen Johnson and has provided enjoyment and inspiration for many years. These tried and tested songs continue to have a hugely positive impact upon countless schools and children everywhere, and our belief in their values and potential has led us to produce this refreshed and updated version of the series that gives you a whole lot more.
Knowing how much potential there is in these fabulous songs, we’ve added a feast of original and new exciting music activities for you to use alongside them in the new activity songbook. We want to help you to grab hold of EVERY musical possibility contained within each and EVERY song and enjoy the learning opportunities they bring. Additionally, our imaginative ideas pages will open up the thematic content of the songs by linking with the wider curriculum and beyond. Our aim is to provide inroads towards creative music education using material that we know will equip, give confidence and inspire everyone.
All of the titles in the NEW Songs For EVERY Series are now available with Words on Screen™ v2 allowing you to display song lyrics on any whiteboard, computer screen, television or interactive touchscreen. The lyrics synchronize with the music as it plays making them easy to teach and easy to learn!

Log in to your online account and select My Words on Screen™ Online

Click on All eSongbooks in the left hand menu and select your eSongbook
The eSongbook is where we bring together all of the digital resources available for your product. As well as being able to play the Words on Screen™ versions of your songs and stream your signing videos, you can also instantly access PDFs and MP3s for your product. You will find these under eSongbook Resources in the left hand menu of your eSongbook.
From there, you can choose to extract and save All Audio MP3s, All Lyrics PDFs and All Score PDFs. If you just want the MP3s, lyrics or music score for one song, then select the song in the library and use the buttons in the Song Extras area at the bottom of the screen.
You can access these files in the same way if you are using the S!ngchronize™ player that you have downloaded and installed from our website. Simply refresh your player and select your eSongbook. For a downloaded player, you will need to download the eSongbook to your player before you can extract and save the PDFs and MP3s. You will also need to have installed S!ngchronize™ player version 2.0 or above.

We believe singing should be inclusive, so we have created some fabulous signing videos to link with the Songs for EVERY Series, for you to stream from your online account. Each video will allow you to easily follow the lyrics as they synchronise with the music in our fantastic Words on Screen™ format, AND at the same time follow the trained BSL interpreter. We have adapted our signs so that they are clear and easy to follow to make them suitable for children so EVERYone can sing and sign our songs!
