Music in the Classroom Programme

Music in the Classroom is a year-long hands-on programme for Primary teachers and pupils in East London, regardless of musical or teaching experience.

“Before you [the LSO] came to our school I was not interested in music. Now after working with you I am learning to play the flute.” Redbridge Primary School student

Music in the Classroom has been running since 2005, led by the London Symphony Orchestra’s music education programme, LSO Discovery. Primary school teachers and their pupils will have the opportunity to explore classical music in engaging new ways, develop musical skills, learn hands-on games and warm-ups, work collaboratively, and create and perform group compositions.
