Our long-standing partnership with the Royal Academy of Music (RAM) brings musical performances to KS2 students in our Neighbourhood Schools.

Each year, a group of Fellow musicians from the Open Academy, RAM’s Learning and Participation initiative, create and deliver performances in schools. Mentored by performer, devising musician and workshop leader Jessie Maryon Davies, and director, Hazel Gould, the Fellows develop an interactive performance in response to a Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) topic, bringing to life pre-existing music from across the classical, folk and jazz spectrum, in a fresh way for new young audiences, including presented and interactive material, narrative and provocation.

The project aims to stretch the creative and performance practice of RAM musicians, whilst offering the opportunity for students and staff at our Neighbourhood Schools to experience, hear and interact with exceptional musicians through high quality performances.

Pupils’ feedback from 2020 project:

“It made me think that when I grow up I can be one of them [musicians].”

“I liked it because not only you were trying to inspire us to play music but also to respect and be kind to one another.”

“We all joined in and it related to the story because at the end they all joined in as well. It made me feel like I was part of the performance and we were playing with the musiciansIt made me feel like a mini-musician.”
