Central Foundation's band - Dance Electric - performing in front of seven other schools


On Wednesday 5th July, Central Foundation hosted 125 pupils from eight schools for the second annual Restore The Music Battle of the Bands.

Restore the Music, a charity which supports music in schools, helps Central Foundation provide its diverse music provision which includes daily music lessons for over 100 pupils before school in a variety of instruments and vocal styles. For the second year, Central Foundation hosted a concert to encourage a number of schools which Restore The Music also supports to perform for each other, giving pupils experience in playing in front of an audience and also encouraging them to write their own music.

Throughout the day, pupils heard from Hackney New Primary, Mitchell Brook Primary, Reach Academy, Corelli College, Greenwich, Skinners Academy, Oasis Academy Shirley Park and Mulberry School for Girls as well as Central Foundation. The genres varied from Hackney New Primary playing a classical style to Central Foundation’s electronic, synth-infused rock band.

The day also served to help warm-up the Central Foundation band ahead of the Summer Concert next Thursday 13th July at 6pm.
