There’s music in everyone

The Education Programme of the Berliner Philharmoniker

“For me, the most important thing that music can do is bring people together.”

(Sir Simon Rattle, 2002)

The aim of the Education Programme of the Berliner Philharmoniker is to make the work of the Berliner Philharmoniker and its music accessible to as many people as possible. Initiated by Sir Simon Rattle and supported financially since its inception in 2002 by Deutsche Bank, the projects are aimed at people of all ages, different social and cultural backgrounds and talents and encourage an active and an artistic engagement with music. 

It was, and still is something close to Sir Simon’s heart, and his firm belief, that the Philharmonie should be accessible to all nationalities and ethnic groups - something in which Berlin is particularly rich. But more than that: it should not only be open to people from all walks of life but it should actively reach out to them. The Philharmonie and the orchestra should be a place of learning that impacts on all social and cultural sectors of society, and which approaches people of different age groups, different abilities and talents.

Education is almost a paradox: it is an open and at the same time a protected space, where people can become actively involved in music making. It offers laypeople the opportunity of meeting professionals on an equal basis. It is an investment in people and their potential, but without the expectation of quantifiable gains.

The Education Programme of the Berliner Philharmoniker shows its diversity in concerts, lectures and open rehearsals, in creative projects and workshops for families, music lovers, young talent, childcare centres and schools. It aims to support participants in their own creativity, teach independent thinking and provide access to the world of music and musical forms. In the educational projects thousands of children, adolescents as well as adults and seniors have discovered their individual talents, experienced music, played music themselves and learned how to hear it with different ears. Because we believe there’s music in everyone.
