Newham’s Music Promise
Music Promise is Newham’s landmark music and social inclusion initiative. It is a commitment to collective action between the music, culture, education, community sectors and Newham Council.
At the heart of Music Promise is the belief in ‘total generational reach’ for every child as well as the creation of new and innovative pathways into music for all young people. This especially including those at the start of their musical journey, disadvantaged through their learning difficulties and disability and for those disengaged from learning.
Music Promise is brought together, guided and overseen by Newham Music. Never has such a combination of provision been delivered or so compelling for Newham, led by a multi-talented team of educators, facilitators and leaders who think and plan about what they will do, together.
While each element of Newham’s Music Promise delivers, its educational distinctiveness is that it seeks to join up music education and music-making opportunities for the borough. It is, as they say, greater than the sum of its parts.
Music Promise aims to inspire through performance opportunities and to deliver sessions and lessons in all neighbourhoods across Newham in four key areas: Music Unlocked, Street-Studio-Success, Music Connected, and Music Enrichment for Schools.
