Update regarding COVID-19

To all our young participants, parents, partners and supporters, we hope you are keeping safe and well in these difficult times.
All our face to face delivery has stopped to comply with guidance on social distancing. Our freelance music leaders are continuing to find ways to support the young people we work with to make music, as interactively as possible, and are putting together a weekly newsletter of musical activities, songwriting challenges and mini-tutorials for the young people. See https://bsharp.org.uk/bsharpathome/   Activities are open to young people of all ages, and there are activities for families too – please email bsharpathome@bsharp.org.uk to join in, or follow us on facebook, instagram or twitter..


We have been working hard to liaise with our partners and funders to reschedule our current projects, and to try and ensure that we can support our young participants, and our music leader team.

Please note that B Sharp is using the government’s job retention scheme with effect from 15th April 2020 which means that staff will be furloughed. B Sharp’s Trustees will respond to urgent queries about existing funding and commitments, please email them at trustees@bsharp.org.uk

B Sharp Update on Coronavirus Situation

In light of the developing Coronavirus situation, and in line with Government guidance on non-essential social contact, there will be no further B Sharp sessions this term.

While face to face sessions are not possible, we are planning fun and easy ways to keep the young people from the B Sharp community making music and connected together. We will be sending out via email and social media regular music making activities for the young people to take part in. These will include videos of songs, exercises and instrumental coaching, and interactive activities to create new tracks and songs. We will be in touch with details very soon!
Thank you for all your continued support – we recognise this is a difficult and unsettling time for you, your families and our communities. Very best wishes for everyone’s health and wellbeing.
