WOW! We were so honoured to be invited by Middleton Primary in Leeds to help them create a special leavers song and video to celebrate their Year 6 classes.
This was such a special project for us and we are thrilled with the end result. To bring everyone together at the end of such a difficult period of their lives was a real joy and privilege.
A big well done to all the kids, and a huge thank you to all the Year 6 staff who worked so brilliantly to make this possible. We wish you all the very best for High School – and that you continue to believe in yourselves. Your legacies certainly do live on!
We hope all you parents enjoy watching this for many years to come!
Enjoy this free singalong gift with your kids! It’s a song all about our amazing connection to each other and all life – how giving and GIVING even more is the way of true growth!

Finally a huge well done to the children of St John’s CE Primary, Bradford for your wonderful singing and support in bringing this wonderful gift for all schools to enjoy to LIFE!
We are so proud and still buzzing from Saturday nights semi-final performance.
We are so happy that our essence, courage and spirit were captured by Britain’s Got Talent and their team. 2020 has been the most challenging year EVER yet these kids from Music Federation Leeds stood up and delivered a knockout performance of our song “I Am”.
Performing outdoors is never an easy task yet these guys stood and delivered brilliantly.
To know that our message has gone global is incredible, and we can say with all our heart, that miracles happen when you believe!
Thank you to everyone who cheered us on, we hope we made you proud!
This project was incredible. St Peter’s CE JI & EY school in Birstall is such a gem of a school. They nurture their kids in a special way and we feel so privileged to have been able to work with them in creating their own school song and music video. It’s a real colour fest that truly captures the spirit of their unique community. We are so proud of this piece of work and of all the children and staff involved. We can’t wait to work with them again.
This project was as much fun as it looks! We had the BEST time with these awesome kids at this very special school in Bradford. We really wanted to help them create a song that captured that unique energy and spirit – built around their motto of “Believe and Succeed” and running the race of life with courage and endurance. With a “School of Rock” feel – we totally love the finished piece. Enjoy!
We are so excited to share this incredible piece of work that the children at Windmill C of E created with us. Their own school anthem called The Windmill Way truly captures their special spirit, their kind heart as a community and their total awesomeness as a school. We are very proud of you all and well done on an amazing project. Thank you for having us!

We are very excited right now! Firstly – we are creating our brand new “Class Dynamix Shop” and our classic track “Bullying Stop” can be downloaded right now as part of an awesome teacher pack. With Anti-Bullying week fast approaching – why not treat your school and get your hands on the pack today?
Our 2016-17 adventure is in full swing. Today saw our first visit to Rothwell Primary, where 90 kids from across Year 5 and 6 totally smashed our Bullying Stop! song. The group raised the roof with their final performance in an electric assembly to close the day.
Well done to all you guys – we were amazed at your transformation throughout the day, and as the song says, you will have left a legacy today that they won’t forget!!
So great to meet you all and looking forward to some more exciting performances in the future!! Danny.
So here we are. Last Friday night – April 1st 2016 – saw 120 children from across 6 Leeds Primary Schools make a defiant stance against domestic violence by performing this song together in front of 17,000 fans at Leeds Rhinos vs Hull KR at Headingley stadium.
The 6 schools taking part were: Windmill and Low Road Music Federation, Sharp Lane, Middleton, Middleton St Mary’s and Shakespeare Primary. Their performance was not only electric and passionate – but they went about their whole business inside the stadium with great maturity and professionalism. We are so proud of all these young people who showed the courage to deliver this important message. Everybody needs and deserves a home which is safe and nourishing. Let’s work together to make that happen. Let’s “turn on the lights”.
We are extremely excited to announce that we will be performing one of our song’s on April 1st 2016 at Leeds Rhino’s vs Hull KR at Headingley Stadium. The performance will feature 100 children from across 3 Leeds schools who will be making a stance against domestic violence. The project is a collaboration between ourselves, Leeds Rhino’s Foundation, Behind Closed Doors, Leeds Council and Family Valued. More news to follow but safe to say…we are totally buzzing!
Just before Christmas, we were very privileged to work with Middleton St Marys School and a group of their children to produce a new song that captured their school values. Here is a snippet of the song that was created – a big well done to the smaller songwriting group who went on to both perform and teach it to the entire school. It was an awesome project and you should be very proud of the quality of your work!
We recently delivered a wonderful project in South Milford funded by South Milford Parish Council and Western Area Community Engagement Forum, Selby District Council. The project centered around our new song – Turn on the Lights, which Year 5 and 6 from the village primary school adapted to create a unique South Milford version. The children premiered their version of the song at the village Xmas lights switch on and some even got to spend some time with us in a professional recording studio to make the track. We would personally like to thank Phil Underdown for his inspirational energy, passion and vision in seeing this project come to fruition. Thank you Phil!
Our new song campaign for the Spring/Summer 2015 is called Dynamite. The video feature’s children from Shakespeare Primary, Leeds and is available as a workshop or community project. It targets both healthy eating and exercise. Here’s a snippet!
We are proud to announce we will be commencing a brand new anti-bullying extended project courtesy of Leeds City Council Inner East Community. Well-being funding has been awarded by your local Ward Members through the Inner East Community Committee – Burmantofts & Richmond Hill, Gipton & Harehills, Killingbeck & Seacroft.
The young people will be working with Danny Gough over 4 Friday evenings, concluding in a live performance at The Denis Healy Centre in Seacroft. The groups will be learning our Bullying Stop! song which targets bullying at school, in our homes, neighbourhoods and on the internet. It’s hard-hitting stance, full of positive messages has been a massive hit with young people ever since it was first launched in Nov 2014. We expect no different in Seacroft.
We are so excited by this opportunity to get involved with the fantastic organisations and youth workers operating in some of the most challenging areas of our city. We will keep you posted at our progress! Let’s do this!!!
Meet Leandro and Joanna – Stars of the Month for February 2015 from Shakespeare Primary, Leeds. The group have just been filmed for a new music video promoting healthy lifestyle with our upcoming song “Dynamite”. The song will be released very soon and the Class Dynamix club will be performing it live on Thursday March 26th!
This was one powerful and amazing project. Harehills Primary contacted us in December 2014 to deliver a project for their “Safe as Houses” week 2015. The project deals with safety at home and the school wanted a song that empowered their young people to make positive stances.
The song we wrote for them is all about the power that one person brings when they choose to stand with courage. It’s also about leaving the right legacies that they will be remembered for. The kids came up with their own “value’s” for the holler section in the middle – and should be very proud of their project. Our heartfelt thanks to all the the school and the staff for inviting us to be a part of their “Safe as Houses” 2015.
