Inspiring, Empowering & Giving Back to the Community
Hogan Academy is a music tuition service which operates in West Berkshire and the surrounding area. We are based in central Newbury and currently deliver lessons to over 400 young people and adults, both at our premises, and in local schools and community centres. We employ a wide range of teachers with an equally wide mix of backgrounds and experience, who all teach with our main focus in mind, which is that learning music should be a fun and positive experience
We set up the charity primarily to help the disadvantaged people in our community who may be in financial hardship, special education needs or physical disabilities to give them acess to music. We currently fund our charitable work from income made from the paid-for lessons (which we deliver to adults and to young people who don’t fit our charitable criteria) - but this is not enough.
We want to keep our work going, and to enable us to reach more young people who would benefit greatly from being creatively involved in music and for this we need your help.
Donations of any amount are very welcome and will be used to give the gift of music to disadvantaged young people and adults, and improve the quality of their lives in the process.

About the fundraiser
I have worked for Hogan Academy CIO since December 2017. In that time I have seen the difference music really makes. I want to help people in our local community and really make a difference to people’s lives.
