bringing contemporary music and arts to the widest possible audience
Education is a major part of the work of Eye Music Trust, through our Colourscape Music Festivals and in-school workshops with musicians, artists, dancers and poets.
We run workshops for all ages and abilities, from Nursery through to Art College. Special Needs groups particularly benefit through the intense light, colour and music in Colourscape. Our workshops support the National Curriculum through art, colour and light, acoustics, active music-making, composition, improvisation and science.
NEW from 2017 - Eye Music Trust have developed a permanent installation....our Creative/Sensory Pod. This enables schools to have a full Sensory Room with all of the interactive aspects of our workshop programmes at a cost-effective budget. Click here to read more about this.
As well as our established Colourscape workshop series, Eye Music Trust also runs longer workshop series in schools based on:
Music, the Science of Light and Sound, instrument making, and sculpture;
Nursery music education;
Special Needs music workshops.
We also run music workshops in Elderly Care Homes, along with our Interactive Sensory Space.
