The Academy is strongly committed to passing on our passion through our learning and participation programme. We aim to deliver dynamic, inspiring and participatory music-making projects, providing access to participants of all ages, backgrounds and abilities.


For over twenty years the Academy has been supporting and changing music education in the UK and throughout the world through its work with schoolchildren, students, and young people

The continuation of great orchestral playing is at the core of our learning programmes, which is why we work with the next generation of orchestral musicians through our young professional partnerships

We offer an annual programme of pre-concert talks to enhance the concert experience for our audiences, and have a dedicated project working to inspire and empower London’s homeless through music
