The Idea of North has a passion for singing that connects with all ages, backgrounds and cultures. Their education program has become an integral feature of the group's musical journey. With many of the members themselves qualified teachers, this program links the group's broad experience in the performance field with that in the education realm to deliver a unique performance-based program tailored to each ensemble's specific requirements.

The Idea of North works regularly with schools, universities and other educational institutions, choirs and musical ensembles. With a wide range of workshop topics and package options, contact the group to discuss creating a bespoke program for your ensemble.

"The interest in choral music skyrockets after they've been here, and continues throughout the year, with the kids waiting and waiting until the next visit." - Celia Christmass, Perth Modern School
