Shortlisted for Best Musical Initiative at the 2017 Music Teacher Awards
Join us for the Modulo Summer Concerts
You are invited to a special orchestral performance of selections from Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition by young people from secondary schools in London, the North West and West Midlands on Monday 10 July at Cecil Sharp House, Camden.
The performance is free of charge and will last no more than 30 minutes.
The Modulo Programme supports schools to set up a small instrumental ensemble - a Modulo. The groups came together in their regions in March; however, this will be the first time the ensembles have united as a full orchestra, and the first time many players have performed as part of a large-scale instrument ensemble.
We would be delighted to welcome you to the performance. To find out more, please email the Modulo Programme Manager, Anna Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Accessing the resources
Once you've signed up, you'll be given access to the Modulo Music (repertoire) and teaching resources via the Modulo Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). For technical issues, contact the Modulo team at email@example.com or on 0207 267 4141.
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 and the North West took part, performing the themes from Dvorak's New World Symphony, as well as their own compositions.
