Schools and Teachers
In our programmes for Schools and Teachers, we aim to enhance the musical experience of students in primary and post-primary education, and support teachers in curriculum delivery and development through innovation and creativity. A key goal is also to increase musical engagement within schools while widening the breadth of our programme through the use of technology.
