COVID-19 Instrument Hire Help

We understand at these difficult times that some families will be finding payment of these invoices challenging, especially where you might have significantly reduced incomes. We do not want to let money be a barrier to your child continuing to learn on the instrument they have chosen and we have made funding available to support this.

Pioneering music programmes for behaviour support / alternative curriculum


Places for two secondary schools on pioneering music programmes for behaviour support / alternative curriculum.


The Music Works is looking for two secondary schools to begin a 10-week programme in January/February 2017 – Digital Music Lab - working with students at risk of low attainment and/or emotional/behavioural difficulties. Subsidised cost: £500.

Students will gain new skills that will be practically useful to them, and outcomes will include improved confidence, self-belief, and engagement in learning as well as attendance.
