LSO musicians giving workshops at London special schools

During the last two weeks, Lemos&Crane has been involved in the evaluation of outreach work by the London Symphony Orchestra at three special schools. The programme is called LSO Discovery and brings world class musicians from the LSO into special schools, predominately around East London. Over the course of several weeks, students get to play and improvise with the musicians, and explore their musical abilities. This term focuses on creating own music inspired by the Hungarian composer, György Ligeti’s, piece Atmosphéres. The idea is to explore different sounds and combine them into textures, creating a piece of music by the end of three to four sessions. Often this piece and other sound explorations are also performed in front of other pupils at the school. By participating in the project, the children learn an array of key skills in music and music-making including the ability to describe sounds and to listen and to respond to music.

Projects like this underline that everyone can benefit from involvement in music-making and creativity. Access and engagement with music provides opportunities for the pupils to express themselves in new and meaningful ways, to enjoy broader life experiences and to ignite the imagination.

Read more about Lemos&Crane’s work to improve access to the arts for vulnerable people with the Re-imagine project. We also work together with the LSO on projects supporting adults with learning disabilities to access world-class music.
