Hello and nice to welcome you back. Few things hold the same lustre decades after being 15 as they did back then, The Clash is one such word but I’d suggest ‘Friday’ holds equal sway. Even though weekends typically involve more work (the pleasure of being self-employed) and things that have to get done I still get the same buzz for the weekly arrival of a Friday as I did in my school days. Complete with The Clash scrawled across folders and books of course.
Today I wanted to share some very inspiring news from the halls (offices?) of our friends over at Strummerville. Oftentimes we’ll support a nonprofit (Strummerville being one of course) and wonder specifically what our contributions are aiding, this new venture by Strummerville is quite simply one of the most exciting yet.
They’ve formed a partnership with Tech Music School London (TMS) which sees TMS offer aspiring musicians the chance to pursue their musical ambitions as the college, part of the award winning BIMM Group, partnered with Strummerville to offer a fully funded place on its BA (Hons) Creative Musicianship course. Such scholarships don’t come cheap - each being worth £17,250, for the full three years of tuition fees. The great news is that one Strummerville Scholarship will be offered to one student, each academic year, for the next 6 years. A quick quote below and here’s a link to the full story over at Strummerville. In total TMS are offering £103,000 worth of education in partnership with Strummerville!
”We are delighted about our partnership with Tech Music School London and thank them for giving this wonderful opportunity. We can’t wait to see the first talented young person on The Strummerville Scholarship.”

It’s a inspiring decision that will make a huge difference to those who receive the scholarships. TMS are just about to move into a new location too, one that will feature a Strummerville performance room. To learn more about Tech Music School London please visit their website.
