Welcome to

The Kids' Concert Company!

The Kids' Concert Company provides a concert experience which is tailor-made for children learning instruments wherever they are in their exciting musical journeys.

Our concerts present the variety of what each instrument can do and include classical, jazz, pop and traditional music from other parts of the world.

 

They are a length that children can manage and keep them involved and participating at all times whilst never detracting from their experience of really listening to and absorbing this wonderful music.

Using only professional musicians of the highest standard means that these concerts are a real treat for the adults too.

Children Learn Through Example and Need Role Models

 

Children learn through example. If they want to get really good at something those examples need to be great!  A child aspiring to play fantastic football will regularly watch a professional match and a child who wants to act will hopefully be exposed to quality theatre and film.  Music is the same.  A child learning the violin needs to hear some really great violinists!

Effective modelling is central to ensuring rapid and sustained progress in all learning; children need to see and hear what success looks and sounds like before they are able to achieve it. The Kids' Concert Company recognise this. Their child-focussed, high quality concerts act both as a match to ignite children's passion for learning an instrument; and the fuel to sustain it. The concerts are carefully planned to be accessible to children with a range of engaging activities to enable them to explore the music, without compromising on the highest standards of musical composition and performance. The pace of the concerts are well suited to a young audience and the performers are engaging and original in their presentation to the children. It is my hope that as many young musicians are exposed to this type of musical experience as possible.

On this note (excuse the pun) children also need role models: ask a child practising tennis who their favourite player is and they will usually have an answer but does your cello playing child have a favourite cellist? And have they met that cellist?  The Kids’ Concert Company gives children the chance to admire AND meet musicians who inspire them. During the concert we will explain how we got to where we are and why we love being musicians.

A Concert Experience Tailor-made for 6-11 year olds

 

After more than ten years of working with children in many different settings I really believe I have designed a concert experience which is tailor made for 6-11 year olds at the beginning of their musical journeys in the world.  These concerts include classical, jazz, and traditional music from other parts of the world.  They are a length that children can manage and keep the children involved and participating at all times whilst never detracting from their experience of really listening to and absorbing this wonderful music.

Holly Cullen-Davies, Artistic Director

Holly is a pianist and singer with an academic music degree from the university of Manchester, a performance degree from The Royal Northern College of Music and a Masters in performance from The Guildhall School of Music and Drama.  She has trained as a Music Leader with Spitalfield’s Music and is a qualified Suzuki Piano Teacher.  Interested in all areas of pedagogy and understanding how children learn she also has a strong understanding of the Dalcroze and the Kodaly methods.  Brought up in the world of theatre, dance and folk Holly has a strong interest in all art forms and in a very diverse range of musical styles. Before founding The Kids' Concert Company she ran the collective Live Junction working with musicians from many different genres and winning an Emerging Excellence Award in 2013. 

 

Holly says: When I was learning to sing and play the piano as a child the thing that kept me going overall was the music. I loved my teacher and I really liked  performing but ultimately it was hearing amazing pieces of music played live that inspired me to practice every day and become a musician myself. My aim in every concert I give with The Kids’ Concert company is for each child to hear just one piece that makes them think: “I’m gonna play that!”
