Here at the Mobile Music School, we pride ourselves on delivering high quality music lessons for primary schools nationwide. Each year we deliver workshops, short programmes, and classroom music programmes to hundreds of schools, libraries, youth centres and language schools nationwide! Each week, out tutors are working hard across the country to provide high quality music education to pupils.

At the Mobile Music School, all of our music lessons for primary schools involve listening to, and playing along with, music.  Incorporating popular songs into your music lessons for primary schools is a fantastic way to incorporate fun and learning into your school day. Further, if pupils are playing songs they enjoy, they will be more focused and dedicated in class.

Selecting material for the younger classes can be straightforward enough. However, it can be difficult to select singing material for 5th and 6th class. Finding songs that are not too basic yet not too mature, with suitable and engaging content is a tricky task. Below you will find some popular songs that are ideal for this age group.
