Our Outreach programme continues to make significant strides in 2024. Thanks to our dedicated team, we've achieved many goals set since our fundraising concert in late 2023. We've launched a program at Cyril Jackson school, offering personalized guitar lessons to 12 students facing socio-economic challenges. The program was a hit, prompting plans to expand to piano and drums. To support this growth, we'll be launching another fundraising campaign soon. Your past support has been invaluable, and we're grateful for your ongoing commitment. Huge thanks to our team and donors for making it all possible. If you'd like more info or want to get involved, please reach out. Your feedback is crucial as we continue to improve and expand our efforts. Thanks again for your support, and stay tuned for more updates!


"After having successfully run London School of Music for over 8 years, I decided we needed to give something back to our local community. Without a doubt it was to teach our lessons to children of disadvantaged families in Tower Hamlets. That's why I created LSM Outreach.At LSM Outreach we are passionate about music and education, and we want our excitement for music also to reach the most disadvantaged. Our main goals are improving access to music education to children of low socio-economic background families, improving mental health of children through music and spread the joy of music in our local community."

- Student testimonial

"The London School of Music is of course a brilliant school, teaching the skills, moving their students up grades but it is so much more than that. It is a community of creative musicians and I am so pleased that my son is a part of it. His knowledge of all types of music genres blows me away and that is definitely down to being a part of this school."
