Learning in Harmony

Music outreach at St Paul's Cathedral

Learning in Harmony is an innovative community engagement initiative which is educating and inspiring children across London through the arts – particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Our ambition

13,000 children engaging with choral and organ music
300 young people with enhanced life chances
1,200 young people with greater confidence and ambition

Our professional musicians run intensive workshops with schools, choirs, and children’s music groups, with many participants having the amazing opportunity of performing at St Paul’s.

Learning in Harmony has a track record of developing self-esteem and aspiration through performance, and by bringing together disparate cultures it fosters mutual understanding and more resilient communities. As well as a singing scheme for London and a project to introduce children to the organ, we run the Hackney Children’s Choir and numerous other creative initiatives.

Following an extremely successful pilot we are seeking to upscale the programme, significantly enhancing its reach and impact.

We are grateful to our funders for their support of this exciting development. To find out how you can help, please contact Alexander Pridgeon, Head of Trusts and Foundations, on 020 7246 8333 or apridgeon@stpaulscathedral.org.uk

"I believe very deeply that music has the power to change lives, and our interactions with St Paul’s this year have been a huge part of this at Nightingale. I would like to thank your whole team for taking such an innovative and inclusive approach to working with schools."
