The Swan Education

The Swan in Schools

Orchestra of the Swan works with local music hubs at each of its regional residencies to ensure access to, and participation in professional high-quality musical and performance experiences for those in Primary, Secondary, SEND Schools, and in Universities.

The Swan’s educational activities enhance cross-curriculum study whilst supporting and encouraging the holistic development of healthy individuals. All activity can be tailored towards a school or college’s specific requirements, year groups, and abilities and projects are always co-developed and created by and with school staff and above all, pupils, providing lots of opportunities to perform, compose and improvise. All activity fully supports the National Plan for Music Education the Model Music Curriculum and an organisation’s own Improvement Plan. 

Please explore our current education projects below.

To find out how your school, college or university can take part in The Swan’s projects linked to composition, improvisation and performance skills, or to book a one-off masterclass, please contact our Orchestra & Education Manager, Megan Matthews:
