We here at the Two Moors Festival do all we can to promote classical music education in the south-west through workshops in schools, and we’re always pleased to hear of other schemes designed to teach young children about this particular genre of music.
So we’re very much looking forward to watching and listening to the BBC’s Ten Pieces, a year-long initiative due to start in the autumn that includes five BBC orchestras and intends to open up the world of classical music to kids and help inspire them to come up with their own creative responses to various pieces through dance, music and digital art.
The scheme is due to launch on October 6th with a week of free cinema screenings across the UK to introduce ten classical works, played by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.
It has been conceived to offer support to the music curriculum, helping to teach children about composers and the art of performing – which we think is a brilliant, and perhaps much needed, development. Anything that helps introduce classical music to a greater audience is welcome in our book, so don’t forget to tune in if you can.
