SWLMEP is a partnership of seven music services which serve over 500 schools across South West London. The seven boroughs (Croydon, Hounslow, Kingston, Merton, Richmond, Sutton, Wandsworth) cover an area of significant diversity in terms of ethnicity, demographic profile, education attainment and socio-economic backgrounds. SWLMEP applied for funding from Sound Connections to help with its mission to diversify the service offering to be truly inclusive of each local community.
This toolkit is a guide on how to create a more inclusive practice which enables every child to unlock their musical potential.
About the Provider
Hounslow Music Service provides instrumental and vocal lessons to learners of all ages and all abilities, both in and out of school time. In addition to these lessons we also offer a structured, progressive ensemble programme at our midweek music centres and organise performances and projects to complement pupils’ learning. We work alongside our schools to support the delivery of music education across the Borough. Over 12,000 instrumentalists and vocalists in Hounslow already learn with us – come and join them!
