Do you like Music? If so, this offer is for your school or college


I’m delighted to announce that our company, UCan Play, is working collaboratively with I Like Music, the providers of Desktop DJ, the only commercial music streaming service fully licensed for educational use in schools, colleges and universities.

phil_swern2The I Like Music collection is built on the original collection of music fanatic and BBC Radio Producer, Phil Swern (pictured here on the right with the collection that is housed in a secure location in London). It includes every UK Top 40 Hit single since the charts began in 1952, the majority of The US Hot 100 and a comprehensive collection of every conceivable genre including jazz, classical and world music – constantly updated with the latest releases (on average, around 8,000 each month).

UCan Play is looking for schools to work with to tailor the I Like Music archive for educational use. In return for a 50% reduction in your school’s subscription to I Like Music, we would ask you to complete a 5 playlists each with 10 tracks based around curriculum themes, topics or subjects. We would work collaboratively with you on this. You can download our introductory pack about this amazing offer here.

Please rest assured, that all this music is fully licensed for use in an educational context. Unlike other sources of music that are illegal for use in schools, such as You Tube, Spotify and iTunes, the I Like Music music has secured all the appropriate licenses for curricula and extra-curricula usage.

If your school is interested in working with us in this way, please contact us and we can send you some further information. In the meantime, why not explore the I Like Music collection by trying it for yourself?
