PROGRAMME AND EVENTS ADMINISTRATOR

 

Lewisham Music is a music education charity that works with the people of Lewisham to develop musical skills and make great music. Formerly Lewisham Council Music Service, we are the music hub lead organisation for the borough with annual funding from Arts Council England.

 

As Lewisham Music Service we established a reputation for the musical and educational quality of our offer and over 6,000 young people make music with us each year. As a music education hub, we have established a network of over 30 partner organisations, including The Albany, London Philharmonic Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra, Lewisham Education Arts Network, Midi Music Company, Phoenix Community Housing and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music & Dance. We became an independent organisation in 2017, with the support of the local authority, in order to capitalise on new income streams and engage with new learners and communities.

 

Providing learning opportunities to young people and supporting music education in schools remain at the heart of our mission, but we want to work more closely with families, parents and local residents of all ages to celebrate the power of music as a community. We now have two years of operation under our belts and, recently moved into new premises at The Fellowship, Bellingham, a new cultural centre which includes a cinema and live music, theatre and comedy venue. This is a fantastic opportunity for us to expand the community with which we engage and create a vibrant hub for music making as a partner in Bellingham Regeneration Arts Group.
