Community music group set to expand

Published: Thursday 31st May 18

A community music group based at the ROSE Centre is looking for more young people to join.

The group, which meets weekly at the centre on the Savona Estate, was set up in 2016 and last year received a grant from the Wandsworth Grant Fund. So far it has taught more than 30 local young people how to play the piano, with two students achieving their grade I ABRSM exam.

Yassine Heba, who runs the group, said “We were fortunate to get the grant from Wandsworth Council last year. This year our plan is to expand and benefit even more young people who otherwise may not get this chance.”

Piano lessons are given on Mondays from 4pm-8pm. If you want to join the group, call 07478218288 or email rosecmg16@gmail.com. You can also follow the group on Instagram on @BCMG_16.

The Wandsworth Grant Fund has helped dozens of community groups and organisations and hands out thousands of pounds each year to support neighbourhood projects. The next round of funding is now open for applications. Find out more at www.wandsworth.gov.uk/wgf.
