Our experience is second to none when it comes to the transportation of instruments and flying entire ensembles across the globe. From Jazz band tours to combined ensemble music tours our contacts around the world allow us to find a school that is of a similar standard to your school’s programme. Our school music tours aim to strike a balance between workshops, performances, and cultural experiences to ensure your students can make the most of their time while on tour.

We understand that the concert band forms the core of a school’s band program. We know that these large bands are often multi-aged and need to use the full range of woodwind and brass instruments. Our experience with transporting such instruments is second to none.
Our choral tours equip schools to take multiple or single choirs to competitions or festivals around the world. We can cater to both secular and sacred choral works, and are well placed with schools and renowned international venues throughout many destinations, in order to arrange the best performances, workshops and exchanges suited to your particular needs.
A world renowned youth music festival, fostering a culture of musical excellence and international connectedness, raising the aspirations of all students who take part.
Student Horizons understands that sometimes schools wish to take ensembles such as choirs, concert bands and string orchestras together to an international festival, or even to experience music making in another part of the world.
We understand the compilation of jazz bands and the special consideration which is needed. The mix of electronic and acoustic instruments and the added difficulty of transporting or sourcing keyboards, guitars, amplifiers and drum kits.
Whether you’re planning to tour with your small string ensemble or your massive symphony orchestra, we understand the special difficulties of transporting violins, violas inside aircraft, especially on long haul trips.

Educational Music Tours

School music tours Europe wide offer a truly inspirational opportunity for your students to stand in the shoes of some of the greatest classical composers in modern history. Mozart, Strauss, Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, Bach, and Mendelssohn to name a few, have collectively composed countless musical masterpieces and their works continue to be adored and studied to this day. There’s no shortage of European destinations to choose from, at each destination your students can stand where the greats stood and live, feel, experience music firsthand. As your students tour the Mozart Haus in Salzburg, Austria they will stand in the very room where Mozart composed some of his most iconic operas all the while struggling to earn a living to support his family. A little further north in Bergen, Norway, a little garden hut sits where Edward Greig spent 22 years of his life composing some of his greatest works. To the east the Rimsky-Korsakov Museum Apartment in St. Petersburg, Russia serves to preserve the memory of one of Russia’s most prolific composers. For more contemporary experiences, pay homage to the late Pavarotti by taking in a showing of Turandot in Italy. Visit one of West End’s longest-running shows, Les Misérables, or visit the vineyards of Tuscany where Andrea Bocelli has drawn inspiration for some of his contemporary works. You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing school music tours Europe. Music tours in Europe can be tailored to make the most of your time while ensuring a rich, cultural and unforgettable experience for your students. No matter your style of music, Europe is the perfect place for your educational music tours.

School Music Tours Safety

The safety of your educational music tours will always be our primary concern. School music tours offer a unique set of challenges – group sizes can be much larger than one of our educational tours or sports tours, and specialised insurance may be necessary for equipment and instruments especially those of high value. No matter the destination, Student Horizons undertakes a thorough risk assessment for all educational music tours. Working with our careful network of suppliers to ensure safe travel throughout and offering 24-hour assistance, we are committed to providing a safe and educational experience on all our school music tours. Given the adventurous spirit of students, we outline an expectation that all travelers maintain their own safety and take all sensible precautions to act in a responsible manner as we cannot guarantee that incidents won’t occur. In the unlikely event that an incident occurs, we guarantee to communicate and manage all aspects effectively. For more information please refer to our safety guidelines.
