The benefits of music making for children are countless but to name a few; developing social skills, making new friends, teamwork, confidence building, inspiring creativity, teaching them patience and discipline, numeracy and literacy skills and much more.
Our children perform in schools at charity events and large venues such as the Winter Gardens, Blackpool Tower Ballroom, Grand Theatre. These experiences have resulted in 30 of our musicians being invited to perform in national orchestras, on TV and radio, at Buckingham Palace and with sponsors such as Sir Elton John. These musicians now have a vocation for life. As young mentors they also spend a great deal of their time ensuring that this service continues to meet the needs of Blackpool
