Steve Pickett, Education Director, HALLÉ Orchestra
"The Hallé very much values its role as a Ten Pieces Champion. For us this whole project has been simply magnificent. We’ve had over 18,000 pupils play ‘Mambo’ with us and in our creative programme, many hundreds of Greater Manchester school children have had the opportunity to create their own versions of BBC Ten Pieces repertoire working alongside our musicians and other associated arts practitioners."
Jane Humberstone, Curriculum Development Manager, East Sussex Music
"BBC Ten Pieces has enabled East Sussex Music Education Hub to reach out to schools, children and parents in new and innovative ways. It's been easy to embed in our professional development training, workshops for children and our concerts. Engaging people with classical music changes aspirations. Having the BBC back up our aims has enabled us to have a real impact on the lives of children from challenging circumstances, it's touched their parents and inspired their teachers."
Dave Lowe, Head of Music, Manor CE Academy, York
"It has been a real privilege to be involved with Ten Pieces Champion NCEM this year. Our 'Musical Inventions' project significantly enhanced the musical learning of our Year 9 GCSE Music students. The initiative has inspired every one of our students, no matter their musical or academic ability, to immerse themselves fully in exploring and developing great new music. As a result of this collaboration the outcomes were stunning and the experience has inspired these young people to invest even more time in their musical development."
