Schools & Young People

Philharmonia Orchestra’s work with schools and young people ranges from schools concerts, teacher training sessions and networking opportunities, to cross-arts and creative work, specialist instrumental tuition and coaching, and high profile performance opportunities. 

Bespoke projects are designed in collaboration with a variety of partner organisations including music education hubs, HE institutions and arts organisations, and are distinctive, inclusive and participatory.
