Music Unlocked

Music, Disability and Technology REDEFINING traditional music-making 

Music Unlocked is Newham Music’s bespoke provision for children and young people with Special Education Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND). From in-school whole-class lessons to our weekend Music Unlocked Orchestra, our specialist team of teacher musicians can support a variety of needs in each setting.

The Music Unlocked Orchestra (or MUO) is our inclusive music group at the Saturday Academy. Young people who are disabled and/or face obstacles to participate in other music ensembles will have the opportunity to take charge, creating new and unique music in a supportive, safe and creative environment. 

The MUO welcomes young people ages 8+ with all abilities and provides:

  • bespoke instruction with individual and small-group support
  • musical skills development at a comfortable and appropriate pace for all
  • a variety of adaptable instruments and music technology resources
  • exciting group music-making opportunities for those who make have previously been unable to access them

MUO musicians will be empowered to redefine the traditional idea of ‘The Orchestra’ – inspiring new musical instruments and creating new and exciting musical sounds.

The MUO meets every Saturday during term time from 11:15-12:45 at St Luke’s Primary School, Ruscoe Road, Canning Town, E16 1JB.
