Story

For three decades Under the Bridge has brought the community together in music making. Children have had classes here from baby and toddler music groups to afterschool clubs; music theory clubs; individual piano, guitar and drum lessons; band mentoring and music exams--whether or not they could pay. Volunteering and work experience have helped many people find their path and their feet. Students have gone on to top music schools, won scholarships and become Heads of Music. Families have been supported in difficult situations. We rely on bands paying to rehearse in our teaching rooms to cover costs and enable us to offer the free classes and community services. Now, with the cost of living crisis, more people are struggling to pay for baby and toddler music activities for their younger children and subsequently instrumental lessons for older ones. Currently we have many children in the 10-14 age group who have already achieved the ABRSM higher grades and ARSM diploma. We would like to offer them a particularly good piano to play on but cannot afford one. We are concerned that not enough younger ones are gaining access to our music activities and might miss out on being part of the future of Under the Bridge and the lively community of families and music makers it supports. We appreciate every bit of help we get.

    Thanks so so much to everyone who has donated so far. Please please keep sharing the link and help us to reach the target in these last few days. There are so many who have been away or said they were donating and haven't got round to it. We would be so grateful knowing things were secure to Christmas at least. Thanks again Jx

    Update after Fundraising Piano Concert Thank you to everyone who was part of this special day: You wonderful students who came to the studio masks and all! You who made beautiful videos at home. Nick for cameras, Harry for lights, Zedify for internet stream, Mulan on fb. Adam for sound mixing. And to my darling son Sam who put the whole steaming thing together, learned new skills to do this and when the streaming quality wasn't good, stayed up all night to make this better quality film. Please share, enjoy & donate. http://youtu.be/9duDmGcPOvE
