Newham Music Trust

Learning Through Music

We are providing real solutions to youth street crime and anti-social behavior. Being based in Newham our project is in high demand. In order to meet this demand we are looking to buy and refit a bus. The bus will be a potable studio to be used by the schools and youth centres around Newham.

Learning Through Music re-skills young people involved in or at risk of antisocial behavior. We re-skill the young people in elements of the music industry and integrate them into society by giving them confidence and skills that are transferable in society. Within 2 years we have doubled the demand for the project and it is set to keep growing. The project needs physical space in which to operate and this is becoming limited. We the new reoute master we will be able to pilot how it will work with other schools and youth centres. If this is successful we would like to increase the number of route masters thus increasing our supply to those areas most in need. To set up the pilot for this we are looking for £25,000. To expand it, the fleet will cost approx. £100k.
