The High Park Music Project offers children from within the 10 Parishes surrounding Wiveliscombe in Somerset an affordable opportunity to learn to play Clarinet, Flute or Saxophone in a band. For a weekly donation of £2 per child they can come to one of the three one hour sessions that are run on Saturday mornings during term time. This includes the use of an instrument which is provided by local fundraising and sponsorship, particularly ragging - collecting unwanted textile items which are then either recycled or upcycled providing High Park with a regular source of income.
High Park Music Project meets at the Scout Hut which is in Old Brewery Road, off Ford Road, Wiveliscombe.
It is the inspiration of professional music teachers, Hilary Wickham and Louise Lawrence who have a wealth of musical experience between them. They share a passionate belief that every child should have the opportunity to access music.
High Park musicians perform at many events including local fundraising concerts for a variety of causes such as the Moorland Mousie Trust among others.
Since the doors opened in January 2012 over 60 children have started to learn an instrument in the band!
