Everyone is welcome! You don’t need any musical experience to take part.
SoundBox is fully inclusive for participants of all abilities. If you require any additional support so that you can take part, parents are very welcome to attend.

This is a partnership project between Drake Music and Spitalfields Music.
In April last year an inclusive group of young people worked together on a similar project – SHINE, a collaborative creative music making project involving three leading cultural organisations based in Tower Hamlets: Toynbee Hall, Drake Music and Spitalfields Music.
