We are a social enterprise – that means we are not-for-profit. Go Kid Music is committed to creating outstanding songs, music and live events for children aged 4-11 and their families.
Our aim is to raise the quality & choice of children’s music, particularly in the UK. We aim to support primary schools to include singing and music in children’s learning every day. We do that through our bespoke topic-based songs and teaching resources. Our online membership offers schools excellent quality resources and support at an affordable price.
We particularly want to support children with additional needs, English as an additional language and children previously/in care who experience difficulties die to early life trauma.
Inclusive – we believe everyone should have access to music & creative learning
Creative – we are always pushing the boundaries
Collaborative – working with others makes us stronger
Kind – we believe good business can have a good heart
Fun – singing, making music and learning should be fun
Ethical – we strive to keep our children and our planet healthy

Ways to support us
We are not-for-profit and during the coronavirus outbreak, I have lost a great deal of work. If you would like to help you can buy any of our wonderful products or make a donation here.
Signing is a big part of Go Kid Music.
Singer-songwriter Al Start has written a vast collection of songs for schools. Her songs are catchy, easy to learn and sound great to children and adults alike. They written specifically for children to sing – the lyrics are age appropriate! We have songs for Harvest Festival, Christmas, Easter and other celebrations. We have songs for topics – from science and geography to PSHE. We have songs for school assemblies and for sharing with parents and carers.
We use Makaton and British Sign Language (BSL). It provides an inclusive and entertaining way to engage with our songs that helps children develop communication skills. That means that everyone can join in. Children learn better kinaesthetically, and that, my friend is a long word! We have loads of videos for you to watch and learn a wide vocabulary of signs.
How to Enjoy our Songs and Videos
The best place to view our content is on our membership platform – we have a school music membership (all those lovely songs for cross-curricular topics) and several online ukulele courses. We have a fantastic children’s Go Kid Music Club that brings you Al’s Excellent Songs for Children in bite-size videos where she’ll teach your children the songs herself!
I LOVE to play live and I am lucky to play with some seriously good musicians. We put on riotous gigs and music events for families like yours! Go to the Events section to find out what we’re up to next…it’ll be lots of fun for your whole family!
How can you be involved? We always need a hand! You can volunteer with us! Send Al an email to email@example.com
For every CD we sell, we are able to fund more music-making. For every ticket we sell to a show, we can offer a school more support. You can help us make more children happy and healthy through music.
Join us by spreading the word – the MUSIC – sign up for our newsletter, join our clubs and membership and buy some of the fantastic music we have made just for you and your children. All our songs are tried and tested on a tough, straight-talkin’ audience of 4-10 year olds, and (believe me) if it doesn’t pass the test with them, it doesn’t make it to your ears! Please help us in our mission and share our website, facebook page and music so we can spread that good stuff all over the world!
