delivering and supporting instrumental and vocal tuition and classroom music
across all Royal Greenwich schools. The Hub also organises out of school

How you can help to transform young peoples lives through the power of music!
- Cash Donations. Pay for one to one instrumental lessons for disadvantaged, musically talented children and young people.
- A monthly subscription guarantees the lessons for that young person will continue, so they can progress and flourish.
- An unused instrument. Is that violin being played or gathering dust? An unused instrument could be bringing the joy of music to a young person.
- The Lonely Piano Project: We can put that dusty old piano to good use. We will collect, recondition and deliver it to a young person so they can practise at home. Read more about Jane Hammond, who benefitted from this scheme, here.
- Time? Could you donate your time? Could you offer lessons to one of our young people? Could you help us during one of our fundraising events?
- Are you an organisation with a venue that could be used for one of our performances?
- Have you fund raising experience? Could you offer your expertise?
- Could you or your company sponsor a performance? Help us to celebrate the talent of our young musicians.
