Music in schools

Be amazing, be a musician

Our award-winning Schools programme brings music to life for thousands of young people each year through a range of high-quality individual and whole-class tuition, curriculum resources, teacher training opportunities and inspirational experiences.

Our Bristol Beacon Musical Schools membership includes resources and tools you need to bring music to life in your school.

Learn an instrument in school

We provide accessible and affordable opportunities to learn to play an instrument or sing in school with individual or small group lessons facilitated by our expert tutors.

We know that music is a powerful tool when placed at the heart of schools – that’s true now more than ever.

We bring music to life for thousands of young people each year through a range of high-quality curriculum resources, enrichment activities and teacher training opportunities to help with student well-being, personal and academic achievement and fostering a positive relationship with the world through whole-class ensemble tuition.

The Bristol Beacon Musical Schools membership aims to support all schools in the city to achieve musical excellence. Our experienced and knowledgeable team collaborate with industry organisations across the music education sector to ensure best practice is at the heart of our musical teaching and learning.
