Creative Projects

Enriching learning through creative musical activities.

All instruments for use in these projects are provided free of charge.

Bespoke Projects

A bespoke project will be designed collaboratively between the school and MfBB teacher. Together, we take your idea. For example, this could be a season, a special school occasion, a school value, a world/local event, an important character, a country or a particular issue such as bullying or racism. Creative musical activities will be used to explore the chosen theme and to enrich and enhance student’s learning. In consultation with the school, a celebratory concert can be arranged for the end of the project.
