HELPING EVERY CHILD FIND THEIR VOICE

Welcome to Song Academy. Founded 12 years ago, we’re the leading platform for young people to express themselves powerfully & communicate how they’re feeling by writing their own original songs. Song Academy is for both aspiring young songwriters who already have some experience as well as young people who want to write their first song. Our mission is to help every child find their voice.

We believe that when young people realise that their voice matters and they can make a difference, amazing things can happen!

UPCOMING OPPORTUNITIES

We wrote a song to remind the world that everyone has a right to be loved, has a right to belong and a right to a brighter future.
