Welcome back to Out of the Ark Music @HOME!

We’re delighted to bring back our @HOME singing resources to help schools, parents and teachers through yet another lockdown!


Each week we will release two songs for you to sing and enjoy @HOME. Our ambition is to do all we can to allow you to continue to sing during lockdown. Singing can help children to feel connected to their school community, help reduce anxiety and boost wellbeing. It is a highly significant force for good in helping us develop a positive and happy mindset, the ultimate mood-lifter and much needed in these unsettling times!

Brighter Day Tomorrow

This aspirational track addresses the issue of impacting tomorrow by the simple choices we make today. Pretty relevant in today's world, we'd say! It's a steady but strong melodic and memorable ballad, with potential for harmony in the chorus. There's no telling what a difference we can make. This world's waiting for the colours we're yet to create.
