Lost and Sound is a rallying call to bring new life to old instruments! Currently we are specifically looking for quarter sized, half sized and three quarter sized violins and cellos. If you happen to have a violin or a cello in your attic, cupboard – anywhere really! – please get in touch and donate it! Not only will it make a huge difference to a Bridge Project student and support their progress as musicians, but it will also help LMM to save money on instrument purchase and hire, allowing us to focus our resources on high-quality teaching.
Donated instruments will be loaned to children in the primary schools in which the Bridge Project is active. We will work with our creative partner organisations (London Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal College of Music, Southbank Centre and Wigmore Hall), local music services, hubs and other relevant charities to distribute any surplus donated instruments across the capital to other students in need.
We believe that every child deserves a chance to play a musical instrument and through this London-wide initiative we aim to bring greater awareness to the importance of music education. Emily is one of our Bridge Project students at Ashmole Primary School in Oval and she recently received a violin through Lost and Sound. Read more about Emily and her new violin here.
As mentioned above, we are currently unable to take any new instruments. However if you have any questions about Lost & Sound, then please contact Hannah Shaw, Development Manager | 020 7091 0767.
LMM would like to thank Andrew Moore for donating his time towards repairing Lost and Sound violins free of charge.
