The CultureMix Music Academy provides a range of music tuition and development opportunities with schools and in partnership with Music Education Hubs to reach over 800 children and young people per week.

At our holiday clubs and out of school workshops we offer tuition in steel pan, drum kit, percussion, bass guitar, keyboards, guitar and vocals to enable young talent to gain experience so they can reach their full potential.

With RASPO Steel Orchestra children, young people and adults can develop their musical skills and experience playing ensemble music in a safe friendly setting with professional tutors.

‘I started learning music on steel pan in my class at primary school and loved every minute of it especially the performances.  I then joined a professional community steel band and got to perform in places like WOMAD and at Notting Hill Carnival.’
