Why we are doing what we are doing

Evidence shows that children’s emotional development has suffered as a result of the pandemic. 

Music can have a positive impact on all children’s wellbeing and mental health including their cognitive, emotional, and behavioural functioning.

There is an uncoordinated approach to music education across socio-economic divides resulting in major gaps in provision.

All children can make music to build communities.

Following the excitement when 90 children from B&NES performed in front of Her Majesty The Queen at St John’s Foundation 850th anniversary service on 1st February, a further 100 children from B&NES and Wiltshire feature in our debut album released on 9th February
