Help for Yasar

After only 6 month’s study, 5 year old Yasar can already play Grade 3 music! His family needed help to get him an instrument worthy of his talent. Working with the EMI Sound Foundation we were able to do just that! Expect to hear from this young man in the future…

Simon’s Story

After 6 months of being homeless, Simon has recently managed to find a new place to live. A lifelong guitarist, he sadly had to sell all his instruments simply to buy food. Things are now looking up for Simon and we were delighted to be able to give him this lovely Ashton guitar (thanks Sound Technology!). Simon now looks forward to using his music to help in in his life’s challenges and sent us this “selfie” (he apologises about the wallpaper!!)

Helping Phoebe

Phoebe lives with her Grandparents and they really needed our help to be able to continue flute lessons. Music is a major part of Phoebe’s life and really helps her with all she has been through. We are delighted to hear that she will shortly try for her Grade 6 exam and that her music teacher is being such a great mentor to her!

Helping Aurora

Talented Aurora urgently needed a larger violin, but some challenging circumstances meant that her family were not in a position to help. We were delighted to be able to step in and support her.

Here is Aurora with her new violin, which she calls “Tiger Flameripple”! She recently played at the Stratford and East London Music Festival and won first place in the Eight Years and Under Strings Class.
