The donations we receive are vital to helping us ensure we are bringing the benefits of music making and singing to people in the Gorbals! We use them to pay our amazing staff team, put on community performances with our partners, purchase the resources and equipment we need to make the sessions fun and interesting, ensure we are meeting all our legal requirements and cover all our core costs. 

Music has the power to make real positive changes in our lives. It can help us connect with others, have fun, learn new things, improve our confidence and develop a shared purpose. We offer this opportunity to everyone in the Gorbals by running relaxed, welcoming music and singing groups. 

All sessions are free

No previous knowledge or experience of music is required 

We make sure to run sessions in an inclusive, accessible way. 


What’s even more exciting is that your donations allow us to be responsive to the needs of our music groups, partners and wider community. For example, if we are asked to run music sessions in a local sheltered housing unit, or a children’s after-school club but we don’t have the money from funders to do it we can use the money you give us!


We like to keep in touch with our Friends to keep you informed of all the great things we are doing, invite you to our performances and other opportunities that arise. Please click on the Privacy Note below to read about how we process your data.
