Brighton music education project awarded £15k to support young people

Published

A MUSIC education project for disadvantaged children has received a grant of £15,000.

Brighton Dome and Brighton Festival’s music education service, which is led by Brighton and Hove Music and Arts (BHMA) received funding from the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation to support children who do not have access to making music.

The SoundCity Young Musicians Bursary Scheme provides high quality, free or low-cost music education and performance opportunities for young people aged between five and 19 who are in care, or whose families are on low incomes.

The grant is one of 16 awarded by the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation to projects which increase diversity in the arts.

Peter Chivers, director of BHMA, said: “This grant will enable us to continue providing high quality and inclusive music education and performance opportunities for children and young people across the city, who want to create music but might not have access because of social or financial constraints.

“We want to give children the chance to grow their creative talent regardless of their background and ability.”

Each year, 37,000 people benefit from BHMA’s creative learning opportunities, open days and music service in the city.
