Tuning In: Mindful Listening

Tuning In: Mindful Listening

Support young people to ‘tune in’ to their emotions with these wellbeing activities by Place2Be’s Art Room and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.  

This project helps young people listen mindfully to how they feel and express themselves through music and art. Royal Philharmonic Orchestra musicians guide young people through the three activities in the project’s accompanying videos.

The RPO’s community and education team work to ensure meaningful music-making opportunities are available to as wide an audience as possible, using the transformative power of music to create happy, healthy and connected communities. You can find out more about their community and education work on Royal Philharmonic Orchestra's website.
