  • Mission statement

    The aim of Apollo Music Projects is to use the language of classical music to develop children’s observational skills, communication skills and teamwork, as well as to excite children about the joy of classical music. Apollo Music Projects provides a unique opportunity for children to work closely with professional musicians, enabling students to discover for themselves how to listen to and enjoy classical music, using their own imagination and experiences to enter a new world of sound, stories and feelings. Research has shown that music education can have a significant effect on attainment in literacy and numeracy, better behaviour and better social cohesion. Apollo Music Projects promotes this through their educational programme, which improves children’s concentration, attention span and verbal reasoning, and broadens their horizons. Through Apollo Music Projects children discover new ways of listening to and enjoying music in a carefully planned programme of interaction with musicians and their instruments.

    Apollo Music Projects has been working in Hackney and Tower Hamlets for the past twelve years, developing and refining our programme. We have already extended our programme to boroughs across London, including Islington, Haringey and Camden and we plan to take our innovative approach to children in other London boroughs and in time throughout the country.
