The power of music making to bring people of different ages, faith, race and economic circumstance together is harnessed in Isle of Dogs Music. Our community programme aims to raise aspiration and celebrate the cultural diversity of the residents of London E14 who live around the commercial hub of Canary Wharf. Staff and students take part in music making activities in community centres and pensioners’ clubs, schools and public spaces, with an annual creative project and showcase performance.
Isle of Dogs Band
Isle of Dogs Band has enjoyed another term of success. Since its launch in autumn 2005, the band has been growing in popularity and this term was able to accommodate 40 young musicians. Four Trinity Laban music students worked with musician Jason Rowland and teacher, Janet Banzaca at Arnhem Wharf Primary School where the band is based.
Get Your Act Together (GYAT)
GYAT launched in the spring term 2008. The project is an after school music club for young people at George Green's school on the Isle of Dogs. Students from the school created their own music which was performed to an audience. The club also aimed to develop teamwork and business skills and during the process, students visited the Trinity building to record their work in a professional studio environment. The project was been kindly supported by Ballymore Properties Limited.
