About Us

Teach Through Music formed part of Music Excellence London, a £650,000 investment in KS3 music from the Department of Education and Mayor of London, funded through the London Schools Excellence Fund.

Teach Though Music was delivered by Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance (lead partner) in association with Sound Connections, Barbican Guildhall School of Music & Drama, University of Greenwich and Trinity College London. This new ‘world class partnership’ was formed in response to a brief from the Mayor of London’s Music Education Task Force who identified the need for a professional development programme that would support excellence in KS3 music teaching in London schools.

Beyond the core partnership, Teach Through Music benefitted from the support of a wider network of cultural organisations, musicians and music hubs who contributed generously of their time and resources in support of KS3 music in London. Please find out more about them and their work on the Cultural Offers page.
