Drawing from real-life experiences I saw that not every person gets access to music tuition or can afford the rising instrument and lesson costs. Why should this be a barrier to enjoying and learning more about music? Music Without Bars (MWB) was born out of a vision to open the understanding of music to children and adults of any age and any ability without the necessity of learning an instrument.

MWB offers tailored workshops to schools and organisations across the country - from primary children to adults and young musicians to established groups and bands. MWB has also been designed to help schools embrace Curriculum markers and assist organisations in meeting learning targets in an innovative and fun approach to music.

MWB education includes:

  1. -Various music and art packs plus tailored content on offer

  2. -Includes Curriculum For Excellence school markers

  4. -Themed content (music-making, dance, new media, cultural, heritage etc.)

  5. -Bolt-ons and enterprise topics

  6. -Talks and lectures
