BBC Ten Pieces
BBC Ten Pieces aims to inspire a generation of children to get creative with classical music
We work in partnership with South Yorkshire Music Hubs to support and inspire teachers and schools as they explore BBC Ten Pieces. As well as hosting INSET sessions on Creative Composition, sparking all kinds of creative ideas, we also work in schools and in collaboration with the University of Sheffield, and with experts Andy Smith and David Ashworth, to animate the project with live musicians and technology.
Have a look at what four Sheffield schools got up to in the 2014-15 Primary project in this film:
Here is the BBC's original Ten Pieces film.

There are some more excellent resources to support the Primary project. Firstly, Mike Leghorn has just released a new synthesised version of Holst's The Planets! You can find it on Amazon here. Secondly, composer Neil Arthur Williams has produced images and downloadable resources to accompany the exhibition POP GOES THE PLANETS, currently at the Holst Birthplace Museum in Cheltenham. If you can't get to Gloucestershire, get them from the Museum's website.
