About Newham Music

Newham Music is the award-winning music education hub for the London Borough of Newham. Since the 1960’s we have been delivering high-quality music-making experiences for children and young people across the borough. We continue to support our diverse community through the transformative effects of music.

For 2020, Newham Music  created a project called From Our Home To Yours.  Music videos featuring traditional songs from some the different cultures that make our borough a unique and diverse home for many. Click on the records below to learn how to sing some new songs with a Newham twist!

For 2021 Newham Music is creating a Songbook with four Newham schools. After a year of being stuck at home in lockdown this project was a way for young people to reconnect with their neighbourhood and wider borough in a new way, as well as reconnecting with friends and their community. Each school identified specific topics of interest enabling pupils to learn more about their local area and discuss their roles in the future.
