Teachers are being invited by London’s Royal Albert Hall to book a visit to see Future Makers this autumn, designed especially for educational visits.
The annual concert, which will take place on Tuesday 17th October this year, was created to support young musicians and inspire pupils to engage with music and become the next generation of artists.
The event showcases talented young musicians from across the city, with eight acts chosen to perform in front of a live audience full of school children and a panel of industry professionals.
One winning act will be selected from the line-up to receive a tailored package of support from the Royal Albert Hall and industry partners to continue to develop in the musical world.
Tickets cost £5 per student, plus a teacher resource pack has been created to help bring music-making into the classroom before the concert.
Lesson plans within the resource pack include KS2 - 3 song writing, as well as music creation and top tips from well-known musicians such as Becky Hill, John Legend, Taylor Swift and Carole King.
Schools can purchase their tickets now by filling out an online booking form here.

Schools visiting the show can also add on a pre-performance 30-minute tour around the venue.
Led by an expert guide, groups will be able to learn more about the history of the Grade I listed building while taking in the Royal Retiring Room, Grand Tier boxes and the Rausing Circle.
The Royal Albert Hall was opened in 1871 and is a testament to the vision of Queen Victoria’s husband, Prince Albert.
Its design was extremely innovative for the time and included a glass-domed roof, which when built was the largest in the world to stand without internal supports.
The Royal Albert Hall Organ is one of the largest in the world with 9,999 pipes. Originally the hall was supposed to seat 30,000 but the design had to be scaled down and it now seats 5,222.
