Apollo Music Projects brings live classical music to children who might not otherwise experience it. Since 2004, more than 14,000 children have experienced the magic of live performance from classroom to concert hall. Working with primary and special schools across north and east London, particularly in deprived areas, our programme provides a unique opportunity for children to work closely with professional musicians, through a series of classroom workshops and culminating in the thrilling spectacle of a full orchestra in concert. Our Impact Report published in 2021 showed that our programme has a significant positive impact on children’s wellbeing, with many stating that listening to music in our workshops helped them with better concentration, relaxation, self-confidence and controlling their moods: "It honestly takes your breath away - the moment it starts is magical. It's like taking you to another dimension.” Year 5 pupil, Woodberry Down Primary School, Hackney.


We provide music education programmes for primary and special schools in disadvantaged areas, based in Hackney and surrounding boroughs in North and East London.
