LMS UpBeats - Lancashire Music Hub

LMS UpBeats

Interactive performances and creative workshops for primary schools, led by our new inspiring professional ensemble.

This dynamic group of professional musicians take you and your pupils on a musical adventure – listen to a live performance, discover the different families of instruments, and work together to create a brand new piece of music to perform together.

An UpBeats workshop is perfect for Arts Week, one-off assemblies, cross-curricular projects and also to encourage pupils to take up a musical instrument. The UpBeats are able to integrate with Whole Class Ensemble Teaching (WCET) and instrumental lessons in school.

Workshops themes:

Lift Off – Journey to a galaxy far, far away and explore the sounds of space.
Animal Magic – Creature of all shapes and sizes are brought to life through music
We can also design bespoke workshops for your group (please email to discuss your requirements).

Workshops are 2 hours, delivered on a Wednesday morning for up to 80 pupils. They are suitable for Key Stage 1 or Key Stage 2, including SEN/D groups.

The cost of a workshop is £250
