Greenwich Music School works with other organisations in short-term and long-term partnerships. Working in partnership means that we are able to combine our expertise with others’ expertise, to create maximum impact in each project.

Our recent partnership project with Quaggy Development Trust provided a tailored course of free classes for young children and parents at children’s centres, together with staff training and a tailored resource for longer term use. It was supported by Sound Connections and Youth Music and shortlisted for a National Creative Learning Award from the Creative Learning Guild.

(Greenwich Music School) is providing not just a music intervention, but an opportunity to inspire and support parents and children at the earliest point possible.

As part of this project we provided project design and management, early years music classes, access to funding, CPD for children’s centre staff and tailored resources for the staff to keep and use in future.

 
Working in partnership allows us to use our expertise with the greatest possible impact.

In other partnership projects, collaborations, training sessions and visits our team has provided teacher training and consultation, curriculum planning, conducting training, performance workshops, a gifted & talented programme, song-writing and composition workshops, conducting and arrangement work for student performances and recordings, accompanists and professional musicians for student recordings and performances, multitrack recording services, composition workshops, aural and musicianship classes and room hire.

Our overarching aim is to provide and promote high quality music education. For us this means providing and promoting:
• Practical, holistic music education which helps each learner to discover and reach their full musical potential;
• Education which is informed by professional music-making, and takes place in positive learning environments which encourage creativity and collaboration;
• Education which is planned and delivered by expert tutors.

Working in partnership allows us to realise this vision, and use our expertise with the greatest possible impact.
