"I was a fairly mixed-up child, around the time I first encountered Fischy (age 10 or so). I was happy around friends, but sad and lonely a lot of the time, and Fischy helped me express both and know that they were both ok."

“Fischy Music songs open an emotional door allowing children to have the confidence to discuss issues and problems that we might otherwise not pick up on.”
Health & Wellbeing Co-ordinator, St Philomena’s Primary School in Glasgow
“Staff, parents and other pupils were very moved by this song, and everyone agreed that it had helped the children enormously when dealing with their grief”.
Headteacher, Royston Primary School, Glasgow
“Thank you as always for the amazing songs for schools that Fischy Music produce. Your songs are sung daily in our class/school and the children very much enjoy them.”
Julie Harris, Reception Class Teacher, Langho St Leonard's Church of England Primary School
“I would like to say a big thank you for the fantastic songs and videos you produced to support our remote assemblies during last year’s two lockdowns. They really helped to lift spirits and keep our community together at a very difficult time.”
Head Teacher, St. Mark’s Primary School, Barrhead
“Your songs are built into the everyday lives of many of our children in the primary department at our school. They give reassurance, stability and develop emotional intelligence not to mention generate great enjoyment too.”
“We are a school with a subscription to your service and as such your songs feature strongly in our curriculum, not only because of the wonderful benefits we enjoy of singing together but because the themes and messages of the lyrics resonate with our school values and ethos that that we promote.”
Pauline McKay, Campie Primary School
