Community Music uses music as a tool for positive change.
As one of the UK’s oldest youth and community music organisations, we offer a diverse and exciting programme of courses, live events and professional training. This includes a foundation degree in music production and business, instrumental and music production tuition, career development and support packages, adult education, music leader training and a whole host of live events from small intimate gigs in our purpose-built theatre to taking part in national events and performance opportunities across the country. The majority of our programme is free.
Our experienced diverse team and industry standard facilities mean that we are able to work both locally and nationally, working directly within the local community running grass roots projects whilst delivering tailor-made training and support programmes that respond to national need.
We work with children, young people and adults aged 8 and up. We aim to provide a safe, welcoming space where young people and adults can explore the music making opportunities available to them, build self-esteem and ambition, and develop a passion for music.
Our music leaders are all professional musicians or producers currently working in the music industry. We train our team in-house and all are fully qualified music leaders and highly experienced.
We work in partnership with a host of local and national companies, institutions and professionals to ensure our provision is of the highest quality. Our partners include the University of Westminster, London Borough of Tower Hamlets, Tower Hamlets Arts and Music Education Service, Mintel and Nomura to name just a few.
