Hackney Youth Music Forum

Sound Connections have recently been supporting Hackney Music Services to develop a Youth Music Forum (YMF); giving young Hackney students the opportunity to have a say on all things music in their borough. This month, Sound Connections staff popped in on a meeting and Wired4Music’s very own motivational speaker K-Hero led a session on leadership. Sharing some of his experiences from Wired4Music, K-Hero incorporated the speaking skills he developed during his Leadership Programme and ideas from the YMF on ‘what makes a good leader’ were thrown out thick and fast! The group went on to vote in their own leaders as Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer and Secretary, and even came up with some additional roles as Marketing and Evaluation Managers – impressive stuff! We’re looking forward to developing this work with Hackney and hearing all about what the YMF have planned for their future…


As a small charity we rely upon donations from generous individuals, trusts and companies to support our work with children and young people across London.
