We are entirely dependent on grants and donations to fund all our activities. All our tutors are volunteers, who receive no or minimum expenses. We have no paid staff, although we receive some help from professionals employed in Schools or by North Tyneside Music Education Hub. See our FAQ page ‘Do any of your music tutors get paid?’ for more info.

In our first year 2016-2017 we received and spent a little over £5,000 mainly on musical instruments (cornets, trombones and percussion), plus other educational materials. See our FAQ page ‘Where do you get your money from?’ for more info.
