Our charity targets and works with some of Scotland's most challenged communities through our Big Noise programme. We started with Big Noise Raploch (Stirling) in April 2008, with six musicians supporting 35 young schoolchildren. We now run four Big Noise centres and work with over 2,800 children and young people across Scotland.
Big Noise Govanhill is Sistema Scotland's second centre in the vibrant and diverse community of Govanhill in Glasgow.
Working with St Bride’s, Holy Cross, Annette Street and Cuthbertson Primary Schools and the two nurseries in the area, the musicians teach in the school day. For more information about the in-school curriculum, click here. Sessions are also run for babies and the Big Noise after school orchestra programme from the base at Forsyth House on Coplaw Street in Govanhill and now our additional location at Holyrood Secondary School.
Big Noise Govanhill is currently open to all children from birth to S2 from the Govanhill community and will continue to grow with the children as they grow.
We are very proud of all the achievements which have already been seen from the children and families we are working with. The after school orchestras are growing every year and we are so excited about learning, experiencing, performing, and loving music together.
