The Discovering Music Group

Havering Music School can provide educational concerts for your school. The concerts are geared to any age and include elements of music as defined in the government's publication The Power of Music to Change Lives, as well as introducing the different families of instruments. Our group of four musicians are in school for an hour and the concerts can be tailored  for an hour or two half hour slots.

Havering Music School work with various national cultural organisations

Together with our partners, we work to ensure that all children and young people in Havering have access to a range of high quality music opportunities.

We work with partners to shape creative projects that best fit schools' needs, support the National Curriculum, train and upskill teachers and provide opportunities for young people to work with world-class artists. We have long standing partnerships with the London Symphony Orchestra, Conductive Music and The Wigmore Hall and more recently we have worked alongside the Royal Academy of Music to widen the participation of those engaged with music in the borough.
