We have a wonderful team of trained professional singers, musicians and producers who deliver our music programme. They use their experience to inspire our young cohort and bring greater understanding to those wishing to take their skills to the next level. All tutors are DBS checked and have participated in further training to maintain understanding of safeguarding vulnerable children. They are encouraged to attend external training through Sound Connections and Lewisham Music Hub.
