Summary of our work in Schools


Over the years, thousands of pupils have taken part in Music Pool projects in primary and secondary schools. We continue to seek funding for schools projects, for which we will commission our delivery partners Encore Enterprises.

 

Projects include:

  • original work based on aspects of the curriculum, e.g. science, history, geography, maths

  • music curriculum support for primary schools - school choir, band & orchestra sessions

  • song-led work with children from non-British backgrounds, interacting & integrating with their British classmates

  • specially-devised music theatre projects and shows on a given theme or subject, also featuring related arts like acting, dance/movement, writing and visual arts

  • masterclasses with national and international classical artists who are performing in the area.  Notable examples have included Julian Lloyd Webber, Tasmin Little, Evelyn Glennie, Emma Johnson, Joanna MacGregor and Nicholas Daniel
