A big thank you to everyone who has signed a Gift Aid declaration to help support our charity's music making activities. We now have over 220 parents signed up for this important scheme, which will help us to generate much-needed new funds to replace the reductions in public funding that MMF is experiencing during 2012/13 and 2013/14.
Take it away could help you get hold of the instrument of your dreams!
Whether you’re looking to own your first musical instrument, or upgrade to one that will help you move to the next level with your musical development, Take it away may be able to help make it more affordable for you to get hold of the instrument of your dreams.
Merton Music Foundation provides a range of music making activities as part of its Merton Youth Music Programme at Merton Music Centre, Canterbury Road, Morden. The Centre offers a structured progression of centrally run instrumental groups, bands, choirs, orchestras and ensembles.
It has long been recognised that music can make a significant difference to the development of children. We know from recent research that the activity of music-making helps develop the mind and the personality in an extraordinary range of ways.
These can include increasing:
confidence and sense of achievement
powers of memory, concentration and self discipline
Merton Youth Music has a thriving Parents' Association known as FMYM. Parents of all students are automatically considered as being members and a committee meets regularly to administer the affairs of the organisation, to arrange fund-raising events and to help with concerts and other events.
Through these efforts some of the more expensive instruments have been bought and large contributions have been made to the costs of music, major events like 'Music is for Life and overseas tours.
