After the success of last year's Ten pieces Prom comes a new selection of classical essentials, this time aimed at secondary-school pupils. In the culmination of the Ten Pieces II project which has taken classical music to schools across the UK this Prom brings the pieces live to the Royal Albert Hall. From the power of Wagner's 'Ride of the Valkyries' to the skills of DJ Mr Switch in Gabriel Prokofiev's Concerto for Turntables and Orchestra, the Ten Pieces II Prom also showcases creative responses from teenagers.

PROMS EXTRA
In a brief exploration of recent research that suggests children who study music and perform music in school ensembles perform better in core subjects (including English and maths) than their peers, Clemency Burton-Hill hears from a leading cognitive neuroscientist about the impact musical study can have on the brain structure and function of children. Catching up with teachers and educators who have subscribed to the Ten Pieces project, and hearing from members of the BBC's learning team, she hears about the impact the initiative has had on pupils in Dudley and discovers some of the creative journeys they've taken whilst engaging with the classical repertoire the project explores.
