BBC Ten Pieces IIis the second year of the exciting initiative for schools which aims to inspire young people to get creative with classical music by using a selection of ten pieces of music as a spring-board for creativity. This year the initiative builds on the success of BBC Ten Pieces Primary – which has already engaged more than half of UK Primary Schools (over 11,000 primary schools) and is now aimed at young people in Key Stage 3. Ten Pieces is commissioned and produced by BBC Learning and delivered in conjunction with the BBC Performing Groups.
