We are a music charity based in Bournemouth and we offer music workshops to people living in the local community. We promote education in the field of music by providing opportunities for developing skills and opportunities in the playing, performing and recording of music and the development of the Sound Solution project.
At the beginning of our project around 1998 we were known as Noise Solution and held workshops on the top floor of Clouds Day programme in Boscombe. Clouds was a project supporting recovering addicts and alcoholics and many of their service users became learners and volunteers for our project. Some of those same learners are still with us today.
We launched Sound Solution in 2004. We acquired both charity and registered company status. In 2007 we moved into the Bourne Spring Centre in Springbourne where we continue to hold our workshops each Monday evening at 6pm.
Over the years we have received lottery funding for other musical projects and we are open to any innovative ideas. In 2009 we produced a musical ‘Loose Change’ and in 2012 we held a community choir ‘Bourne Chorus’. Both of these projects were very well supported and it gave Sound Solution members the chance to learn new skills themselves.
Each year Sound Solution plays at local festivals and events. This helps give our learners more confidence and belief in their own skills – don’t panic it’s not mandatory!! Please come and join us!
