Summary

Nucleo uses music to change children's lives for the better. Our free education programme brings inspiration, fun, friendship and challenge to children and young people from one of London's most disadvantaged communities. Nucleo is committed to helping our students learn and grow through music. Running a free programme is critical to this aim. This includes providing free instruments to all 380 of our young musicians.

Challenge

At Nucleo we believe that all children have musical potential and that every child should have the chance to discover theirs. But lots of children lose out. In 2021 Ofsted found that only 1 in 4 schools in areas of deprivation offer music lessons. The findings also show that 41% of parents from low-income families say instrumental music lessons are beyond their household budgets. With more people struggling financially because of rising living costs, this figure may now be even higher.

Solution

Our programme is open to all and free. This includes providing instruments free of charge - removing one of the main barriers families face. We don't means test to determine eligibility because we believe in bringing our whole community together, but 46% of our students live in the poorest 20% of neighbourhoods nationally according to the Income Deprivation Affecting Children Index. 89% are from the poorest 50%.

Long-Term Impact

By providing instruments free of charge to 380 students we are ensuring that they don't miss out on the opportunity to discover a passion, uncover a talent and forge friendships. Playing an instrument also helps develop executive functions. These skills, which include regulating attention, switching easily between tasks, and developing working memory, are all skills that children need for their academic learning. In short, learning music can help children get a better start in life.
