About Us

We are passionate about building a sound future for young people through music.
We offer a broad, inclusive programme of music, singing, participation, creation, performance and development from early years to adulthood, and to young people from a wide variety of backgrounds across West Dorset, East Devon and South Somerset.
We build personal, social, enterprise and leadership skills so participants and our young workforce of music leaders develop as people, musicians and citizens.

How we work

Young people are at the heart of what we do.
The opportunities that young people have with B Sharp to make music are unique, because of our ethos of inclusive, creative group composition. We encourage young people from a wide variety of backgrounds, ages, and skill levels, to work in groups, to create their own original music, improvise and ‘jam’. B Sharp is unique nationally in providing regular weekly inclusive creative ensemble opportunities for young people.

Who we are

B Sharp is a charity, and is run by a small staff team, working closely with a core team of professional music leaders. The charity is overseen by a board of trustees. We also work regularly with a wider group of freelance professional music leaders, guest musicians and creative professionals.
We actively develop partnerships across the music, education, youth and charity sectors to ensure music opportunities are available to all young people.
We are fortunate to receive Revenue Funding from Dorset Council and Lyme Regis Town Council, and support from Youth Music towards our regular weekly sessions.
We seek other funding on a project by project basis.

My son truly benefited from the project and made great strides in his music making, his commitment to learning and social interaction. I would say this is true for many of the group. The cost of not funding work like this is a lack of ongoing opportunity and associated risks
