Celebrating the music

Our latest issue of Sounding Board journal is now available. The focus is on celebrating the music co-created by our members with communities throughout the UK. There's lots to read, watch and listen to with contributions from Orkney-based John Phillips, Ellen O'Brien of Soundabout, Kimberley Harper on songwriting with families, Lee Holder of The Music Works in Gloucestershire, and Jess Abrams' work with young people at EC Sessions.

Members can log in to read via the link below, or check your inbox for the latest issue. If you're not yet a member, and are interested in reading Sounding Board, then email info@soundsense.org for a sample issue.

We support, promote and advocate for our community musician members and the community music sector in the UK and internationally
