MCO Educatie is the Music Education department of the Netherlands Broadcasting Music Centre in Hilversum. The goal of MCO Educatie is to introduce pupils of primary, secondary and special education to live classical music, world music and jazz. MCO Educatie pays special attention to pupils in environments where this music is not self-evident. The projects of MCO Educatie are related to the programs of choir and orchestras of the Netherlands Broadcasting Music Centre and their task as part of the Dutch Public Broadcasting Service.

One of the basic principles of the educational projects is to let pupils experience live music by active creating and performing under guidance of professional coaches and musicians.
