SEUK Awards 2019 – Best Music Production Company Southern England
Well, it’s not often I can say I won something – first place! But this month Go Kid Music was awarded Best Children’s Music Production Company in Southern England 2019!
This year we made the exciting evolution into a social enterprise. That means our constitution and core mission (to create and produce outstanding music and events for children, schools and families) are perfectly aligned. Our structure now reflects accurately what we do. About time really! It also means as we are a profit-for-good enterprise we can apply for exciting funding opportunities. We can lead projects in partnership with organisations such as music services, social agencies and charities who provide services for children.
Our upcoming project Safe-Sound will see us working in three schools to develop a digital toolkit for primary schools. This will enable them to use music and singing across the curriculum and throughout the daily timetable. We will be focusing on groups of children who struggle to settle to learn due to early life trauma such as being in care (fostered/adopted) or due to special needs/disabilities. It’s going to be ground-breaking work, so we’ll keep you updated on our progress!
We are currently working in partnership with Brighton Virtual School for Children in Care. We have been running an after school children’s music group for children in foster care. It has been a riot! We have rapped, ukulele-ed, danced, played percussion, written some songs, and are now making a pop video! Next we’ll make puppets and a music show – there’s no stopping us!
Also new this month is our online ukulele club for children and/or beginners – take a look here and find out how your family can get involved!
