We scratched our heads trying to find a reason why school subjects should still be kept separated. We failed, so we started designing workshops bringing them all together.
We kept seeing STEM as a top priority, with the arts being neglected. If we complied, there would be no movies, no videogames, no thinking outside the box. So we adopted
STEM + Arts = STEAM
We are now providing live online sessions, using free resources. You can join our free WebEx and Zoom lessons from your classroom, by projecting onto the smartboard, or from the comfort of your home, using laptops, tablets or phones.

Who we are
In 2012, we founded Conductive Music to bring together art, music, technology, science, pedagogy and research. We are a team of artists-researchers working in intergenerational and mixed abilities contexts to inspire marginalised young people, experiencing challenging circumstances. We foster imagination, help them gain confidence in complexity by adopting a step-by-step approach, and embrace failure as an integral part of a successful creative process.
Conductive Music has been operating in 500+ schools across England and internationally, for over 8 years. Our experienced tutors are DBS-checked and specialised in the target Year group. We use Zoom for our password-protected sessions. The tutor’s camera is the only one visible, the student microphones are muted, and the chat is only allowed towards the teacher, for questions and problems. Each session is run by 2 Conductive Music teachers, to provide support. We welcome one or more teachers from your institution to join.
