WHAT IT’S ABOUT

Friday Afternoons is about encouraging young people to sing. Our newly composed songs and support material aim to help teachers develop their students’ skills – as performers, listeners and composers. See our trailer for more information.

We are thrilled that composer Jonathan Dove has written new songs for this year, set to specially written lyrics by Alasdair Middleton. Sheet music, backing tracks and other resources are available from our Song Bank, along with all of the songs from past years.
