In the UK, many professional orchestras, including the London Symphony Orchestra and the BBC Symphony Orchestra, are committed to delivering creative learning programmes that encourage diverse audiences to engage with and enjoy music. While orchestras are dedicated in bringing music of the highest quality to audiences worldwide, many also place learning at the heart of their work, and collaborate actively with concert halls and educational institutions, as these initiatives help to strengthen their ties with local communities, promote leadership skills among musicians, and raise the overall quality of their sound. 

The British Council, with a range of Japanese and UK partners, promotes opportunities for collaboration in this area, including practical training for musicians and discussions that bring practitioners from the music and wider arts sector, education sector and policy makers together.
