Wigmore Hall Learning
Since 1994, Wigmore Hall's renowned Learning programme has been giving people of all ages and backgrounds opportunities to take part in creative music making, engaging a broad and diverse audience through innovative creative projects, concerts, workshops and online resources.
We are passionate about the impact music can have on our lives and on our society, and three core values lie at the heart of our programme: creativity, collaboration and equality. These values reflect the spirit of chamber music, and we embody them through quality, co-created music making, through which every voice is heard and equally valued.
We collaborate with a range of community, education, arts, health and social care organisations, working in partnership to engage people who might not otherwise have the opportunity to take part.
- Schools includes schools concerts; teacher training; projects with hospital schools; and our innovative Partner Schools Programme, in which we work in partnership with schools and Music Education Hubs to co-produce activity over three years, creating a creative whole school plan for music
- Family invites families to Wigmore Hall to take part in inspiring, interactive workshops and concerts for families with babies, children in their early years and children aged 5+. Beyond the Hall our partnerships enable us to make music with families who have experienced domestic violence, poverty and homelessness.
