Tomorrow’s Warriors believes in the right of every child to access creative education, and works regularly and extensively throughout the year with schools, colleges and higher education institutions in the UK and internationally, offering bold, ambitious, and bespoke music education programmes that deliver successful outcomes for learners and leaders.
Our 2017 nationally touring programme, The Jazz Ticket was an ambitious music education and performance programme in 9 cities, 11 venues, and 54 schools across England designed to bring young people, their families and friends into contact with some of the most exciting jazz artists in the UK. The programme had been devised in partnership with Turner Sims and Southampton Music Hub and, in 2017 delivered 162 workshops for around 600 young musicians around the country.
