BBC Ten Pieces

BBC Ten Pieces have really enjoyed all of the amazing work you have done with Ten Pieces III this year, from taking part in their live lesson, to creating your own versions of No Place Like and putting on your Ten Pieces School Assemblies as part of the Biggest Weekend.  They are now getting really excited about the Ten Pieces Proms coming up at the Royal Albert Hall on 29 July 2018. If you’re close enough why not join them in person or otherwise listen live on BBC Radio 3.

In the 2018/19 academic year Ten Pieces is going to be encouraging everyone to get creative with the 30 Pieces from across Ten Pieces I, II and III. They will also be launching some new resources and some opportunities to take part in some BIG BBC EVENTS throughout the year.

See below for more information about what is happening next year:

  • New primary lesson plans for TP I & II
  • Bespoke resources for disabled young people and those with additional needs
  • New resources tailored to under 7s

With the 50th anniversary of the moon landing and the 100th anniversary of The Planets, 2019 is a great year to explore the topic of space.

7 June 2019, BBC Music Day Ten Pieces Assemblies
Finish the Ten Pieces year by holding a Ten Pieces Assembly for BBC Music Day.
