The creative music workshop involving professional players was intended to give direct support to school teachers and to enhance music in the classroom. However, today's large-scale, high-profile projects mounted by orchestras and opera companies appear to be developing into a full-scale industry on their own, their role in partnership with schools and colleges requiring clarification. Through research into orchestral education policies, this paper reveals some of the confusion and suggests that music companies could profit from the experience of museums and art galleries.
