We are highly fortunate to be part of the In Harmony Project. There are only six other projects across the country.


In Harmony's mission is to transform the lives of children in communities through orchestral music-making.


The core principles of In Harmony are:


  • In Harmony is inspirational and transformational for children, families, schools and communities.
  • In Harmony is modelled around participating in an orchestra
  • In Harmony is immersive - with children playing instruments together several times a week from an early age
  • In Harmony seeks to engage all children in the school or community in which a project operates, and it is open to all
  • Children learn together while playing in an orchestra together.
  • The teaching is of exceptionally high quality
  • As children progress, they help each other to learn and progress


Children at Robin Hood have been involved in the Project since January 2013 and have made great progress.


All children in years 4, 5 and 6 have regular tuition and all have their own instrument to take home. Many staff have embraced this too and are learning alongside the children.


Since then we have performed at the Albert Hall in Nottingham, Held an open air concert in school and performed for parents and carers.
