Schools & music educators

BCMG Schools Programme runs in a number of Birmingham schools throughout the academic year focusing mainly on composing and improvising. We look to develop bespoke projects for individual schools and have in the past run a programme of specific workshops, examples of which can be seen below. All of our out-of-school projects can be adapted for the school environment. BCMG can provide bespoke CPD for primary schools wishing to develop staff expertise in creative music making and we offer an MA in Teaching and Learning in partnership with Sound and Music and Birmingham City University. We work hard to ensure our projects are collaborations between teachers, composers, workshop leaders, musicians and the young people, recognising that expertise is held by all partners and that each project should be a learning opportunity for all.

Fundamental to the success of the partnership has been the meticulous manner in which the projects have been planned and evaluated by all parties.
