On Friday 19 January Portsmouth Music Hub launched the latest addition to their award-winning series of songbooks.

'My Dream Job', written by Music Hub composers, is about the jobs and careers that we all imagined we would do when we grew up. There are songs about astronauts, firefighters, footballers and even a song about being a website designer. The songs are fun, engaging and are written to inspire a new generation of young singers and performers.


The Lord Mayor of Portsmouth and children from St. John's Cathedral Catholic Primary School took part in the official launch of 'My Dream Job' at the Guildhall in Portsmouth. The children performed one of the 19 songs which make up the songbook, and because one of the songs is about the life of a vet everyone was thrilled to meet Bombay the cat, who made a special appearance at the launch.

Sue Beckett, CEO of Portsmouth Music Hub said: "Our songbooks are original, contemporary and designed to support the educational curriculum. Most importantly the songbooks, which are a valuable resource available to schools in Portsmouth and around the country, are created with children in mind; using their imagination as a springboard to create inspirational songs that will, we hope, develop a life-long love of music and singing."
