Educational Workshops

Graffiti Classics’ interactive workshop-style performance enables kids to enjoy and develop their own musicality with fantastic flair, finesse and frivolity. The Graffiti Classics educational show makes classical music fun for youngsters with its scintillating slap-stick, brilliant arrangements and mischievous humour.

Proud of its excellent education outreach, which presents the cheeky joy of classical music to kids world-wide, Graffiti Classics has toured schools and International Children’s Festivals throughout the UK, Ireland, Spain, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam and Norway. The group participates in Yehudi Menuhin’s ‘Live Music Now’ Scheme.

The band’s greatest hope is to inspire the Paganinis and Beethovens of the future!


All Graffiti’s players are highly-skilled workshop leaders, drawing from the best of both aural and visual worlds, creating an unforgettable and educational experience for children of all ages and abilities. A truly interactive show where the children simply can’t resist joining in with singing, dancing, and making music. Getting involved is what it’s all about, with the children being given opportunities to conduct, get up close and even play the instruments.

All workshops are tailored around the National Curriculum’s music syllabus. Children will leave our performances having learnt about:

  • The String Family
  • Musical Terms
  • Dynamics
  • Time Signatures
  • Rhythmic Clapping
  • Each individual instrument and it’s attributes
  • Composers and Musical Styles
  • Colours and Textures in the music

Separate performances to different age groups are offered within the same school on the same day. Graffiti Classics can perform to up to 250 children in 1 workshop and offer up to 4 workshops a day.

Best of all, the expense and hassle of transporting the children to an outside venue is non-existent as Graffiti Classics comes to you. Plus, at the end of the day, the whole school can enjoy an exclusive performance of Graffiti’s virtuosic show. The group also released an educational CD with Naxos to great critical acclaim.

Graffiti Classics is perfect for introducing youngsters to the wonderful world of music – an educational and enjoyable experience is guaranteed for all.
