Proms in the Playground resources

You will know by now that #PromsInThePlayground is a national, musical initiative from Brass Bands England's Brass Foundations Programme that seeks to link brass bands with their local school to provide a free, fun performance in their playground during the last three week of the summer term.

You will have arrived at this page because you have already been invited or you are already involved in planning a #PromsInThePlayground event with your local brass band. Great!

To actively support the musical learning that your school is going to experience, the Brass Bands England Brass Foundation team have created these resources to enhance and develop your pupils' understanding of what is an integral part of our country's musical landscape. - brass bands.

Resources for everyone!

Proms in the Playground Song -Resources for schools and bands will be available here soon. There will be sheet music, backing tracks and more - a way for everyone to be involved. Keep an eye out on this page for further information.
