Our Primary Schools Tour helps teachers all over Scotland deliver aspects of A Curriculum for Excellence. These children’s operas make learning exciting, challenging and creative and allow pupils to participate in a high-quality, day-long music theatre workshop, ending with a performance for parents and guests.

Each school that participates receives:

  • High quality teaching resources, including a teachers' support pack to help introduce the music and related activities.
  • An advance visit from a specialist choral musician.
  • A day-long workshop with a team of highly experienced arts education specialists and performers.
  • A 30 minute performance for family, friends and schoolmates to share.

Welcome to the world's most magical restaurant! Developed in a series of workshops with over 200 children, Tiny Chef is set in a marvellous, moveable restaurant, The Sūgélán Dragon, and teaches basic Mandarin and the principles of food purchasing, preparation and presentation, with a focus on fresh, healthy ingredients. 

Discover Tiny Chef


An online opera for Primary 57 pupils

Some people think that opera is only about things that happened a long time ago. Well, this opera is all about a young boy who is struck down by a mystery illness and rushed to hospital. Sound familiar?

Our first ever online opera for kids combines music and micro-biology like never before! Split into five sections, each part teaches the melody and harmonies of one of the songs from the opera – with choreography – and also includes downloadable activities. Alongside the musical elements, children find out about infections and viruses and how the body fights them, as well as Fake News and why it’s important to understand that not everything you read on the internet is true.

Discover Fever!
