Finish This...

A new music making programme for schools

Finish This…uses specially commissioned operatic works as a creative starting point to inspire students to create and produce their own music through an invitation to respond to, and resolve, unfinished artistic work.

Accompanied by a package of bespoke resources and teacher CPD training, Finish This… empowers teachers to lead and deliver new approaches to music making in the classroom. The programme is closely aligned with the national curriculum and develops students’ composition and performance skills, introducing them to opera and new cultural experiences, whilst promoting creativity, collaboration and self-expression.

We delivered a pilot version for primary schools for 24 classes in KS2, across London and Luton, working with 600 pupils. Feedback showed that 100% of class teachers reported that they would recommend Finish This… Primary Schools across the nation can sign-up now for Finish This... for their class to take part this Autumn 2022. In addition, we’ll be running the programme in a range of SEND schools and conducting in-depth evaluation.

We also delivered a pilot version for primary schools for 150 KS3 and 4 students across 8 schools in London, Luton and Liverpool. Feedback showed that over 80% of teachers reported they improved their confidence in delivering composition work in the classroom. Secondary Schools can sign-up now for Finish This… for their class to take part this Autumn 2022. In addition we’ll be running a tailored programme to PRUs and ESOL classes.
