Story

The Rhythm Practice

This Music Therapy practice is due to open in early 2021 and will be based at The Pound Arts Centre in Corsham, Wiltshire. The service will help develop a positive change in the well-being of individuals of all ages through the creative use of music, facilitated by trained music therapists.

The video below outlines the aims of this project:

In total, £8500 is required in order to equip a room with high quality music instruments and equipment. £6000 of this target has already been pledged by the council and a school, leaving an outstanding balance of £2500. This final balance must be found in order to unlock the rest of the grant funding to bring this project to life.

    Absolutely amazing news today. Corsham Town Council have agreed to put in £500 to The Rhythm Practice which takes us through the target required to unlock all other match funding - a total of £8.5k. I really want to thank all 58 of you that have donated to this project through this Just Giving site. Without you this project would not have happened so a huge THANK YOU to each and every one of you. It is heart warming to get the financial support but just as importantly get the moral support and belief that this is a worth while cause.

    SOOOOOO CLOSE!!!!! I woke up this morning to find the total has reached a major milestone £2k. That leaves only £500 to go. If you are considering donating then now would be a great time. If you are one of the 52 that have donated then thank you so much ❤️ This project is on target. The plan is to get the funding completed in January and equip the space at Pound Arts in February ready for opening after this lockdown. The first to benefit from The Rhythm Practice will be pupils at Corsham School. We just need a final fund-raising push!

    Wow! 20% in the first 24hrs!! Thank you so much to the first wave of supporters to this project. It is so encouraging to get things off the ground so quickly and positively. Making the donation that you have done gives a great personal boost. It is worth bearing in mind that any business that wishes to support this project can do. For any donation over £200, I can include the name of the business on the Rhythm Practice website (when it goes live) and be sure to spread the news about the donation through social media. Best wishes, Will
