London Rhymes has been reimagining and reinventing the ‘nursery rhyme’ since 2015, with an ever-expanding collection of original songs co-written with families and young children. Working particularly with those facing challenges such as insecure housing or poor mental health, the music created is original, eclectic and in a diverse range of styles, offering something different for those looking for beautiful, fun and original music to listen to and sing at home. They release their music online, as well as performing ‘Rhymes LIVE!’ for families and schools up and down the country. The London Rhymes team are often commissioned to write new songs for schools and Early Years settings, and were winners at the Music & Drama Education Awards 2022 for ‘Excellence in Primary & Early Years’.
