The Beacon has been working with In Harmony for the past five years to deliver a superb musical education to all out pupils. Every child learns musicianship and later in their school careers will learn to play an orchestral instrument and perform as part of an orchestra. This musical education covers the full content of the Naitonal Curriculum, but extends pupils' experience with world class professional tuition, access to a arage of instruments and enrichment activities and performance.

Launched in February 2009, In Harmony Liverpool uses orchestral music making to improve the life chances of children by increasing confidence, wellbeing, skills and resilience, enhanced by opportunities to travel, learn, perform and collaborate with professional musicians, international artists and other young people. In Harmony Liverpool’s vision is a healthier, higher achieving future for North Liverpool. 

Music making takes place at All Saints Catholic Primary School, Anfield Children’s Centre, Everton Nursery School and Family Centre, Faith Primary School, The Beacon Church of England Primary School. Every child learns an instrument and creates orchestral music throughout their time at primary school; over 1500 children and young people aged 0-18 are learning music every week, free of charge. The children learn repertoire from across music genres including classical, pop, traditional and new music. Creativity is also encouraged through creative music making and composing new music from an early age.

Performance and musical excellence is at the heart of In Harmony. Since 2009, In Harmony has presented 300 performances by young people to a total audience of 42,000 in 38 venues, including local community venues, Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, London’s Royal Albert Hall, the Southbank Centre, and Sage Gateshead.
