This lovely school in Cleethorpes needed our help to provide violin and djembe instruments and specialist teaching to the pupils. The school faces a number of challenges and the Headteacher wanted to extend the music provision to as many of the children as possible. We were only too pleased to be able to help out and you can see the children in action with their new instruments!
The Ensemble Reza Community Orchestra in West Sussex was established in 2015 in order to bring musicians of all ages and abilities together (there are over 80 of them aged 6 to 81!).
This really works and the orchestra even has whole families participating.
The organisers needed our help to carry on their outreach work into the community.
We were delighted to be able to support them and they now have a great range of rehearsals and performances scheduled to grow the number of musicians.
This amazing London project provides professional training on the recorder at specially subsidised rates for students and especially supports children from poorer backgrounds and ethnic minorities. We had recently had a range of recorders kindly donated to us and we knew just the people to give them to!
Here is talented Jason, who is currently working towards Grade 7, with his beautiful Mollenhauer recorder that we gave him
Community Sound in London needed our help to be able to run their monthly community music events. The focus here is on participation and breaking down social barriers.
Have a look at the pictures, people got involved from the very young right up to a gentleman in his 80’s who helped with the conducting! We are very proud to have played our part in this wonderful initiative.
Muntham House School was set up in 1953 to support young boys with challenging behaviour. We recently met teacher Sydney, who had just started at the school and wanted to bring more music into the school day. Together with our good friends at Sound Technology, we were able to give Sydney some guitars and amplifiers to get things going!
This London school was determined that all of the children should be able to access a broad musical curriculum and they asked for our help. We stepped in and here are the pictures of the new instruments now being used by 90 Year 4 children every week! The school has also now been able to expand the orchestra and give more students the chance to play as part of an instrumental ensemble.
