Ten Pieces is a project about classical music and creativity. It is open to every primary school in the country and will be a collaboration between the BBC, music and arts organisations.
It will take place over 10 months between October 2014 and July 2015 with the aim of introducing a generation of children to 10 pieces of classical music. It is hoped it will act as a catalyst for creative activity and help schools to deliver the music
curriculum as well as collaborate with partners to maximise the impact of music and arts education.
The timeframe is as follows:
Phase 1 – Inspiration: October 2014
Phase 2 – Exploration and Creativity: October 2014 – March 2015
Phase 3 – Presentation & Performance: April 2015 – June 2015
