Tesco’s Bags of Help Scheme

Avenue Junior School is seeking to develop the music department by creating a music room that is open to both pupils and the wider community regardless of age, wealth or skill level. A place where both young and old can exchange ideas and teach each other new skills.

Our vision is to equip the music room with 17 computer workstations that will be available for pupils to use during the school day and the public to use, initially for one evening each week. The workstations will be equipped with software that enables users to create, compose and learn about music without the need to play an instrument. This of course will not mean we will abandon encouraging pupils to learn musical instruments in the traditional way; we simply feel this is a way of engaging all our children in music. As inclusive as we try to be at Avenues, there will always those who would love to demonstrate their creativity in music but feel they lack the instrumental skills or confidence needed to perform.

We have been seeking funding for this project and have been successful in being nominated for the Tesco’s Bags of Help scheme. This means that throughout both March and April, customers at Tesco will be able to vote for Avenues Community Music Room with a token received after making a purchase. A list of participating stores where Avenues Community Music Room can be voted for is listed below.

We do hope you will support this cause. This is a unique opportunity to create something amazing that will last for many years to come. We feel it will change the experience of all the children at Avenues and many of the adults as well. It will allow users to explore their creativity in music without being limited by inhibition or instrumental ability.
