Juilliard: One Year On

Seeing the world through music

We are committed to helping students develop skills that will help them succeed, wherever opportunity takes them. Our collaboration with Juilliard develops more than just a love of learning, it develops skills for life.

An assessment of our collaboration with Juilliard one year on

What will your child need to succeed in the future? We know that academic performance is crucially important, but they will need more to make their way in the world. Through research on the impact of our Juilliard collaboration, we discovered that confidence, creativity and problem solving are just some of the skills we nurture through our programme.

Our partnership with The Juilliard School is forged from the idea that music can help them develop traits needed across subjects and later on in life. We believe that studying performing arts can also benefit students' emotional and personal development.

We piloted the programme with 10 of our schools across the world. One year on, we asked nearly 900 primary and secondary students and 36 teachers what difference it made to their learning.

 
An International Perspective

Students reported that our embedded music curriculum with Juilliard made them think differently and understand the role of music in different cultures and history. 

 
Transferrable Skills

Teachers reported that the programme developed a range of transferrable skills such as creativity, self-confidence, and problem solving. These are top skills needed in the work force by 2020, according to a report by the World Economic Forum

Students added that they felt more confident after the first year of the programme, and had improved creativity and problem-solving abilities.

 
What our teachers say

Not only has our programme increased progress in music skills and knowledge, but also teachers reported impacts on other subjects such as English, maths science and foreign languages. 

 

Learn from the best

Learning from the best encourages students to feel inspired, and to imagine themselves achieving greater things.

  • 92% of teachers said that students were much more enthusiastic in music lessons.
  • 75% of teachers thought that students made much more progress in music thanks to the programme.
  • The number of programme students planning to study music after the age of 14 is set to double in 2017.
