Newham Music

Join the Docks

Newham Music

Award-winning music hub for Newham, Newham Music is developing a programme which will inspire pupils from nursery school through to Year 11 to create new original music through the exploration of the heritage of the Royal Docks.

Working with the Museum of London Docklands and over 150 pupils aged 3 -16 from schools across the Royal Docks, Newham Music will showcase the history of the Docks to children and help them to devise their own musical compositions based on the area.

See some of the work complete so far and listen to some of the songs the children and music teachers have developed, over on the Newham Music website.

This work will also provide interactive and accessible learning resources and activities as well as a Join the Docks song book which will then be made available for use in schools and community settings throughout Newham.
