A free fundraising day that your students will remember forever
We specialize in preserving memories through music. The process of recording an album with your students is both enjoyable and rewarding. The finished product can be utilized by your school as a fundraising tool. When working with us, you can expect a positive impact on both the school and the students. The following provides additional information about our approach and the benefits of our services.
Orchestrating your day
The first step is to arrange a date for us to visit your school by picking a day that’s convenient for you and enough time to generate interest among parents.
Once the day is booked, we work with you to plan what music will be recorded. While students have the freedom to choose the songs to record, we can help. We provide a list of popular songs that have been selected in the past, along with backing tracks and lyric sheets for each one.
Our approach encourages the musicians among your students to perform either instead of, or in addition to backing tracks.
Raising funds for your school
The recording day is offered at no cost. The school’s only requirement is a minimum order of 50 Songbooks, (read about Songbooks here). The more copies you purchase, the lower the price per unit, which increases the school’s fundraising potential. For a detailed breakdown of the costings and what you will earn click here.
You don’t need to decide how many to order until after the recording has taken place. This is to ensure that additional orders will come through as students share their experience with their families.
We will collaborate with you to promote the album, providing professionally written letter templates for you to distribute to parents to increase awareness. The greater the awareness we generate, the more funds we will be able to raise.
In addition to raising interest among parents, we will also work to generate excitement among students. We will provide an artwork template for students to create their own designs, and the winning design will be featured on the cover of the album.
Making your voice heard
On the day of recording, we’ll be in your school by 8:30am and ready to record by 9am. All members of our team have undergone DBS checks and will bring proof of this with them. If your school has a hall, it would be an ideal location for recording. If not, we can use a classroom.
Our team is composed of professional audio engineers and we utilize state-of-the-art equipment to capture the voices of your students. The recorded music will then be transferred to our recording studio for the next stage of the process.
Creating a radio worthy album
After the music has been recorded, our engineers will mix and master it, using industry-standard techniques to ensure that your school album has comparable sound quality to the music heard on the radio. We will handle the copyright registration process on your behalf and package the recordings as a digital album.
Each copy of the album is redeemed through a unique code, unlocking a one time download and unlimited streaming. The code is presented in a Songbook, which includes the track-list, student artwork and puzzles! The Songbooks are delivered directly to the school. Click here to view an example.

A few words from our clients
A fabulous and professional experience for our children. They really did feel like stars! A beautiful album created featuring student made artwork in the booklet. We look forward to our next recording session.
We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, bringing us together as a school. We learned about professional recording and working together as a choir. Sam is lovely guy to work with and kind to the children. He was relaxed and happy for us to take breaks and redo certain songs. Each child will remember this experience and we know our parents and carers will love this musical memento too.
It was great to get the whole school involved in the project. Each class had their own song and we were able to share celebrations with families despite any covid restrictions. We sold out within 3 days!
What an amazing experience for the children! They loved having their own songs recorded as an album with their own artwork featured on the booklet. Professional and efficient from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommend!
All staff and children at St. Stephen’s were excited about being involved with We Are Heard. From the offset, Sam was easy to communicate with and answered all questions professionally and efficiently. It was a real pleasure to welcome Sam into our school and now we have a fantastic album to be proud of! A great idea for schools to celebrate musicality and singing. Definitely recommend!
