Teachers in primary schools in England can now ignite their pupils' enthusiasm for classical music with a free online resource, Classical 100. It has been developed by ABRSM in partnership with Classic FM and Decca Classics and with the support of the Department for Education.

Classical 100 is built around 100 recordings of  classical music pieces which teachers can draw upon in lessons, school assemblies and other school activities.

Alongside a recording of each of the works taken from Decca's catalogue, there is information about the composer and the story behind the music.

ABRSM will also draw on its network of primary school experts to create and publish a range of downloadable materials on the resource throughout the academic year, thereby helping teachers to bring the music to life in the classroom.
