Orchestras for All - an approach to inclusive ensembles

Wednesday 19 October 2022

5.30pm - 7.30pm

Southwark Music, Southwark Council, 160 Tooley Street, London, SE1 2QH


Led by Orchestras for All’s artistic director Emma Oliver-Trend, this in-person practical music session will look at lesson and rehearsal strategies to improve the inclusion, progress and community in your ensembles.

The session is relevant to anyone leading an instrumental ensemble of any age group and ability, including school-based music groups to borough-wide ensembles, across primary and secondary, beginner to advanced.

The session will include inclusive warm ups and rehearsal strategies, boosting active learning and autonomy through reflective practice in young musicians, and discussion in involving hard to reach young people. This will be a practical session so please bring your instrument.

This session is open to all music educators working in the boroughs of Lambeth, Southwark, Lewisham and Royal Greenwich:

  • instrumental tutors/peripatetic teachers
  • primary, secondary and SEND teachers with a responsibility for music
  • workshop leaders
  • community musicians

Sound Connections and the South Riverside Music Partnership are working together to deliver a training and mentoring programme for music teachers, tutors and community musicians in Lambeth, Southwark, Lewisham and Royal Greenwich supported by the Scops Arts Trust.



As a small charity we rely upon donations from generous individuals, trusts and companies to support our work with children and young people across London.
