What is the Modulo Programme?

Calling all music teachers and community music leaders! Give your young musicians the chance to perform as part of a large-scale orchestra on a world class stage.

The Orchestras for All Modulo Programme supports music teachers to establish a small instrumental ensemble in their school or community for students aged 11-18. The programme aims to help music teachers lead a rewarding instrument ensemble for students of any instrument skill level who are keen in take part in music. We provide teachers with bespoke arrangements of music that flexibly caters to all ability levels and instruments, rehearsal plans and resources and two opportunities per year to come together with other schools involved in the programme to perform as a large-scale orchestra, once regionally and once nationally.

Last year, 30 Modulos from schools in London, the West Midlands, the North West and Yorkshire took part, performing the themes from Dvorak's New World Symphony, as well as their own compositions. Schools and community groups who have taken part in the programme include:
