Soundbox is an all-ability inclusive music collective that brings together disabled and non-disabled musicians aged 16-25 from East London to make and create music using a mixture of traditional instruments, music technology and singing.
Soundbox is for anyone interested in:
- Developing as a musician through making music with others
- Experimenting with music technology and/or instruments to make music
- Being creative
- Meeting new people from different backgrounds and working collaboratively with others
- Being part of a new and unique ensemble
“My favourite thing about Soundbox is how spontaneous it is – someone plays something on their instrument and suddenly, 10 minutes later, it’s a brilliant piece of music and everybody is joining in. It is also really exciting because as people get used to their instruments and to each other, the music just keeps getting better and better, and more interesting.” Daisy, trumpet
