Shake It Up is an annual competition run by the Schools Printed Music Licence (SPML), which enables schools to make copies of sheet music, or any rearrangements they like!
The competition started in 2017-18 and received a passionate and enthusiastic response from music teachers, music hubs and schools. The competition launches at the beginning of September and finishes in spring. Those who wish to join are encouraged to submit a music or choral arrangement specifically made for pupils to perform in a school activity. The arrangement has to be covered by the SPML.
The prizes for this year’s competition are:
- £700 cash for the winner, to spend on music resources for his/her school
- £400 cash each for two runners up, to spend on music resources for their schools
Entering the competition may be done by submitting the entry either via email or post.

About the organiser
Now you can make copies of a huge range of printed sheet music, covering all types of artists and genres of music from rock to classical and jazz to hip hop!
For years, teachers of music in schools have got used to the idea that they shouldn't make copies of printed sheet music because they would be breaking copyright law. This is no longer the case.
You can also make use of printed music owned by your local music hub or service.
