Support the arts whilst supporting your school.
Gigs For Schools has now launched, providing services for primary and secondary schools throughout the UK and Republic of Ireland.
Gigs for Schools allows children to experience high quality, live music performances. We bring professional contemporary musicians into the classroom to musically inspire pupils, providing them with a selection of original and well known works.
Our high-energy performances are designed for pupils to get involved by singing along and moving to the music! We encourage audience participation, and pupils can enjoy a question and answer session with the professional musicians after the performance.
No two performances or performing artists are exactly the same, giving schools the opportunity for this popular program to be brought back multiple times in the academic year. Our musicians deliver a wide range of repertoire, therefore each performance will be unique. We will also take requests to suit your school’s needs!
Gigs For Schools can help schools to raise additional funds. Parents can pay a small fee to cover the costs of the performance, with the profits generated to go straight back into the school itself! We allow schools to have complete freedom over their pricing.
Have your pupils experience live music as a part of their regular school day. This unique opportunity will put a band of experienced musicians in front of your class as they perform a thoughtfully selected and carefully arranged selection of favourite songs.
Each performance is 45 minutes long and can be scheduled up to three times throughout the school day. We’ll provide everything you need, from the artists themselves to the tech and expertise required to make it all happen.
While Gigs for Schools is offered on an inclusive one time basis, no two performances of performing artists are exactly the same; offering the opportunity for this popular program to be brought back multiple times throughout the school year, providing inspiration for your pupils on a familiar and exciting new basis with each new gig.
There’s even an opportunity to earn money for your school with our GFS parent-funded strategy, making this a zero-risk investment in your pupils’ future – not to mention one of the most fun-filled experiences available!
Gigs for Schools will help your school by providing all communication to promote your performance. Targeted correctly, you can make all moneys back, plus more, by teaching kids – you gotta pay for talent!
Each program is designed to allow your school to take advantage of it’s fully functional venue capability: your very own assembly hall! Our presentation’s unique pricing structure means the more pupils who attend, the more money going back to your school to invest as you see fit – a true win-win for everybody!
Gotta pay the talent! Each of our performers is a real-life professional musician, and that comes with rules – and a lot of gear! The performance fee covers all of this, starting with four musicians at current Music Union rates along with their instruments and equipment, so your pupils get the best in-school music performance possible.
Put cash back into your school! Gigs for Schools works by bringing the music industry’s Artist-Venue performance model into schools around the UK and Ireland. Fill your assembly hall with pupils and get more than just an educational experience out of it – you keep half the profit as well.
…and a little bit of admin! If your pupils loved it, so will others. While a small portion of the ticket sales from each Gigs for Schools performance facilitates the behind-the-scenes action that brings the gig to you, the rest helps provide the same awesome experience to schools and community centres that can’t manage it themselves, even after parent involvement.
Pupils and teachers are excited about the experiences from Gigs For Schools. See what they have to say here:
I cannot recommend GFS enough! It was wonderfully active and engaging for our pupils, with the band playing songs that were well known to this target age group. The band took time to explain how they fell into music, encouraging the children to follow their dreams in whatever it is they hope to do. Thanks GFS!
As a teacher at a primary school where Gigs for School performed at, I can 100% recommend them to any school who want to give their children a first hand experience of music performed by top quality musicians. My pupils loved them and have already started asking if, or when, they’ll be coming back!
This was my first time watching a mind-blowing band. They were amazing and very talented. I am so happy that I decided to go. They were skilled as they performed in front of many people. Their hard work to perform outstandingly surely paid off. I hope this opportunity could happen again as I really enjoyed it.
I think the Gigs for Schools workshop was amazing because we could experience and know more about music. We could imagine how it would feel to be a musician. It really inspired me to become a musician, we had the best time ever!
