Imagine if every classroom in your Primary school was transformed into a band...
Imagine if every child and every teacher (even non- specialists) had a part to play and a place to belong...
Imagine if there was a system that put musical collaboration at the heart of your school. Where children were encouraged to help each other and develop musical confidence and passion together with their friends.
Imagine if holding it all together was the most ambitious Primary music curriculum ever put together with mind- blowing creative projects that actually link Music to what’s going on in the rest of your school…
This is what we call a musical community:
Transforming schools into Musical communities is what we do at Muzingo. Our latest programme is called Classband and it could transform yours too...
You might be wondering if this is actually possible- in which case you haven’t seen ‘Growing Musical’ the documentary about the Primary School we helped to create a brand new Musical from scratch.
