Where will the instruments go?
These instruments will go to children and young people participating in ambitious 'social action through music' projects, in targeted communities in England. The instrument amnesty will benefit some of the 3,000 young musicians in Sistema programmes in 14 schools in London, Liverpool, Newcastle, Norwich and Telford.
Overseas, the collected instruments will be repaired (if needed) and given a second life in 16 Music Fund projects in Africa, the Middle East and Central America. Music Fund is a humanitarian project that supports musicians and music schools in conflict areas and developing countries.
Can I track my instrument?
On the day, we will assess your instrument with experts and give you a tracking number so you will be able to know exactly where your instrument goes. If you wish to track your instruments, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your tracking number and we’ll get back to you.
What will happen next?
Ronnie Scott’s will do a follow up by organising jazz workshops within these projects to inspire young generation of aspiring musicians and hopefully pass on to them the love of jazz.
