Creative Music Resources
We bring a creative music-making culture to your classroom and home for engagement, ownership and achievement.
Place creating and performing at the heart of your children’s musical experiences from Reception/Primary 1 onwards.
Fun, smart activities on screen produce music-making with voice, body percussion and classroom instruments. Fresh approaches to notation, improvisation and composition help children create on-screen, then perform using voice, body and classroom percussion. Smart design guarantees rewarding musical outcomes, giving you confidence and your children ownership of something they realise is valuable.

Our Early Years and Primary Resources are now established in numerous ASN/SEND schools, and our Primary resources include 3 adapted courses adapted for ASN/SEND children, pitched at P1-3 mainstream level.
Our creativity ethos allows all activities to be adapted to suit each individual child on any individual day. Our brand new ASN/SEND Assssment and Intervention Guide allows you to assess the challenge for each child in 8 dimensions (see right) with loads of suggested interventions for each area. This allows you to help the wide range of ASN children you work with- from those with Severe and Complex Needs to ASN children in mainstream classrooms.
Both Primary and EY resources are widely used in ASN/SEND settings - so try a free trial of both to find out which level of resources is suitable for your children.
Raise Attainment Through Music
• Literacy • Numeracy • African Drum & Dance
ABC’s unique resources link music-making to learning that raises attainment in numeracy and literacy.
Linking targeted literacy and numeracy processing to musical performance, these resources are coded for the major phonics schemes and SEAL, so provide a genuinely complementary approach; a godsend for both staff and children struggling with existing resources.
Our African Drum and Dance programme has achieved amazing results in improving confidence and self expression especially in Upper Primary boys.
And we have just launched a new Body Percussion and Numeracy programme- perfect for Covid-safe cross-curricular music-making.
"Like manna from heaven: ABC resources bridge the gap for struggling children in a really fun way.“
