Local schools are celebrating 2012s amazing summer of sport by learning a special fundraising song The Day is Here! recorded by Monkey Music.

Written especially for Monkey Music, the song tells the exciting story of a running race and will be released and available to download from May 18 from http://www.monkeymusic.co.uk/ to raise much needed funds for music therapy charity, Nordoff Robbins.

Gry Hills, Music Coordinator at The Lea Primary School and Nursery in Harpenden, says, This year is all about the UK celebrating an exciting summer of sport and The Day is Here! is a wonderful way to help children at our school to interact with each other through music and song, and to raise money for Nordoff Robbins music therapy charity at the same time. This charity is especially close to our hearts as some of our pupils have benefitted from their services.

The children at The Lea Primary School and Nursery will be singing The Day is Here! with the school choir and performing it at their Summer Fair on June 15.

Headquartered in Harpenden, Monkey Music is a music group for pre-school children. Every week over 10,000 children and their parents attend 300 Monkey Music venues throughout the UK.

If you would like to book a complimentary Monkey Music class for your little one in Harpenden or St Albans please call Natasha Ballance on 01582 620446.

Angie Coates, Founder of Monkey Music, says, Both Monkey Music and Nordoff Robbins offer children fresh opportunities and life changing experiences through music. We believe that by working together we can raise awareness of the benefits of music for everyone. Its lovely to use 2012 and the summer of sport to engage the very youngest of children in the excitement of sport and the joy of music.

Jo Carter, Director of Fundraising & Communications at Nordoff Robbins adds, We are delighted to be working with Monkey Music, and to be sharing our mutual belief in the power of music to help raise funds and continue transforming the lives of vulnerable children and adults across the UK. As a charity we rely entirely on voluntary donations, so the Monkey Music song, released on the May 18,is a great way to raise funds and awareness.

Monkey Music classes and local schools are currently learning the song, and the The Day is Here! fundraising charity single will be officially released on the May 18 and available to buy online with all profits going to the Nordoff Robbins charity. http://www.monkeymusic.co.uk/
