Husband and wife Steve and Jo Solbé of Bingham-based business Learning Through Music, have released a CD helping children with their times tables through contemporary music.

Dubstep, drum ‘n’ bass, hip-hop and electro house all feature on the album called Tables Tunes.

During his 20 years as a primary school teacher Steve has often used raps and songs to engage pupils in the classroom, and wanted to produce a CD that wouldn’t sound out of place on the radio or in a club.

Learning Through Music are also delivering workshops to schools, and teacher and numeracy co-ordinator at Bottesford primary Alison said: “A girl in my class said the other day - I know that 8x8 is 64 because I can still hear the music in my head.”

Steve said: “The feedback from parents and their children has been great. As a teacher it’s fantastic to hear about children who are getting top marks in their tables tests. As a musician it’s rewarding to know that your tracks are being well received by their audience.”
