MiSST launches at home schemes to support students during lockdown
Music in Secondary Schools Trust (MiSST) has launched ‘MiSST at Home’, a project to stimulate and support young people during these unprecedented times whilst continuing its leading curriculum.
Rachel Landon, CEO of MiSST said “It is more important than ever to help create a sense of normality for young people in these strange and unsettling times. Being connected to others and playing music will have many mental health benefits for our young people and we are committed to ensuring this continues whatever the circumstance”.
Funded by the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation, MiSST works with 15 secondary schools in and around London, and Warwickshire. The charity helps secondary schools that have disadvantaged and challenging student in take by providing not only funding for classical instrument but also support in the form of regular tuition, opportunities to perform and a programme of excellence that is unrivalled in the UK.
