Videos for Schools

Supporting Communities

Extended periods of lockdown have had a monumental impact on music education. To counteract this and to enable our players to stay connected to our communities, we devised a series of videos supporting students at various stages of their musical journeys. We’ve continued creating videos for schools post-pandemic and our latest set of videos Nurture Nature are now available to watch. 

Earthcycle: Nurture Nature

Videos for primary school children led by instrumental quartets in partnership with author, trainer, and educator Felicity Robinson of Landscapes Naturally.

Musical Journeys


Developed with SEND pupils in mind but could be differentiated and used for Key Stage 1 and Lower Key Stage 2 pupils too. 

Audition Hints and Tips

From mastering nerves, to breathing techniques and unpicking popular audition pieces for Trumpet, French Horn and Clarinet.
