Academic learning/teaching

Our Vision

Our vision is for a future where everybody benefits from the value of music.

We provide universal and targeted learner-led opportunities to create music. We supply training and tools to primary and secondary schools to help them transform mandatory music teaching, and we work in partnership to use the power of creating music to affect individual and social change.

Schools

  1. To refresh and embed our innovative learning models in the secondary sector through professional development, new approaches, resources and supporting and growing our network
  2. To develop and rollout a Musical Futures approach for primary school music
  3. To establish an annual professional development event delivered in partnership with others

Out of school settings

  1. To develop new partnerships to deliver professional development programmes for those working with disadvantaged young people
  2. To deliver an income-generating professional development Musical Futures programme for workplace learning

Consolidation

  1. To grow a sustainable income
  2. To strengthen networks nationally and internationally
  3. To build the Musical Futures brand in the UK and overseas
  4. To better understand our impact and outcomes

We are keen to work with partner organisations who share our vision. Please contact Abigail D’Amore if you would like to discuss working with us.

 

About the project

Ten Pieces aims to open up the world of classical music to 7-14 year-olds across the UK and inspire them to develop their own creative responses to the music.

  • Explore our ‘Ten Pieces’ films; these consist of ten performances of classical music – there are twenty pieces in total for you to use
  • You can watch the whole set of each Ten Pieces collection by ordering a free DVD box set or by viewing each performance separately. The performances are between two and ten minutes in duration
  • The pieces are supported by free downloadable teaching resources including lesson plans, composer information, cross-curricular resources and simplified orchestral arrangements
  • Catch up on what’s been happening in the last two jam-packed years in this clip and in our photo gallery
  • You can also look ahead and see the list of pieces selected for the 2017/18 academic year. New resources for this list will be launched for the next autumn term

Ten Pieces Champions are Music Education Hubs, Music Services, orchestras, film, dance and other arts organisations from across the UK working in collaboration with the BBC to introduce classical music to the next generation. They have signed up to Champion the project and work together on delivering music and arts education to every young person throughout the nations and regions.
