The Music by Numbers project is off to a flying start in primary schools across Greater Manchester! Composer Emily Howard and Camerata’s Amina Hussain and Helen Quayle have been working with students to discover the similarities between maths and music.
|The project aims to explore why so many scientists and mathematicians play music for a hobby? Is there really a connection between these two disciplines? We think there is - and what's more Manchester Camerata we aim to prove it.
Over the coming months the Camerata team will be touring their half day Music by Numbers workshops around primary schools throughout the North West, developing skills in musical addition, subtraction and division, and playing rhythms with mathematical precision!
Pupils will create a new piece of music which they can share in an informal performance at the end of their session.
