Support for Whitefield Primary School

This school asked us for help in buying special instruments for use as music therapy for children with Autism or social, emotional and mental health difficulties.

We were delighted to be able to support the school and even more delighted to hear about the positive effects the music is already having.

Improvements in confidence in communications, social interaction skills, concentration and attention are already being seen!

Helping the Ernest Read Symphony Orchestra

Ernest

We were so pleased to be able to assist this wonderful orchestra in London with a Grant to put on a special concert. The event targeted players aged from 8 to 14 from local junior ensembles. As you can see from the pictures, children and adults all played together in order for the young participants to be able to experience a full orchestra. We were delighted to hear that the young people were all inspired to carry on with their music-making!
