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.
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.

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