Covid-19 Update

We are delighted to be re-launching our Glasgow City Council, Education Services CREATE Bands, Orchestras and Choirs starting in November 2021.  We are so looking forward to welcoming our young musicians back to City Halls on a Saturday morning and filling it with music and singing.  It has been such a challenging time, but we have been utterly blown away by the creativity and innovation shown by our tutors and young people to keep music alive in our schools and beyond.  We would like to thank everyone so much for their support, hard work, determination and solution focussed approaches which have allowed us to develop and strengthen our Music Service and we are so looking forward to the months ahead.  Please note, we are pleased to tell you that due to Scottish Government Funding, there will no longer be an annual charge for our extra-curricular groups. 

We continue to strive to give the best possible opportunities and experiences for our young people and in doing that we are making some changes, additions and improvements to our Music Service this year. We are starting with the registration for our String Orchestra, String Sinfonia, Concert Band, Symphonic Wind Band and all being well, we will be reviewing our City Choirs and Glasgow Schools Symphony Orchestra early in 2022.

We will be sharing all of our news, projects, initiatives and concerts here on our CREATE Website as well as updates in terms of our progress and registration for all of our City Groups. We will also share any important information via our CREATE Social Media - Twitter | Facebook

Due to the restrictions, our Christmas Concert this year will be hosted on our CREATE Youtube Channel but we hope to have everything up and running for a very special Concert in Spring 2022 where we will celebrate and showcase our very talented musicians and singers. We have waited a long time for this and are sure that it will be a complete sell out and it will be a wonderful performance and celebration of us being back up and running but bigger, better and stronger than ever!

Many thanks to all for all of your support and we look forward to an exciting few months of relaunching our City Music.

CREATE (Creativity and Expressive Arts Transforming Education)

As part of Glasgow's Improvement Challenge, Glasgow CREATE was established in January 2016 by Glasgow Education Services to raise the profile of Expressive Arts and Creativity and to support schools to raise attainment and achievement across the curriculum through thinking differently.

Supporting all Primary, Secondary and Early Years Establishments in Glasgow, CREATE continually strives to have the highest quality learning experiences and opportunities for our children and young people ensuring we support schools to transform Expressive Arts in our city through innovation, creativity and inspirational learning and teaching.

CREATE ensures that teachers are confident and skilled in delivering the Expressive Arts curriculum through regular CLPL opportunities and access to a comprehensive Framework for Expressive Arts to support a creative and skills based approach to teaching and learning in Art & Design, Dance, Drama and Music.

Glasgow's Framework for Expressive Arts, resources and staff CLPL can be accessed via Follow @GlasgowCREATE on social media to stay up to date with our latest news and good practice from across the city.
