To support the implementation of Curriculum for Excellence, the materials have been designed to allow teachers and early years practitioners the freedom to incorporate them into their teaching practice as they choose.
Scotland's Songs brings together a diverse collection of more than 130 Scots and Gaelic songs and tunes from across the nation. All songs are freely available to listen to online; most are accompanied by full lyrics and musical notation. The new resource also features introductions to traditional songs and music, a tour of Scotland's instruments and a look at themes in Scottish music.

These are new sites, still under development. For example, the translations of Gaelic lyrics are not yet linked to the Gaelic recordings. Also, there is the prospect of a Phase Two in which regional material will be added.
