About us

We are a small dynamic strategically focused team - we like doing, but we also love to talk ideas and make them happen. 

Soundwave is one of the leading music participatory companies in the North of England.

Established since 2007, Soundwave is a company limited by guarantee, and since March 2014 a registered charity.

Soundwave is funded by the National Foundation for Youth Music and receives project and strategic funding from the Arts Council of England, as well as various trusts and foundations. We earn income by charging for workshops, some projects and events.

We are leading a music education revolution!

Our goal is to create fresh and meaningful opportunities for people (especially young people in challenging circumstances) to use music and singing to learn, live better, connect with each other and inspire change in their own communities.

We’re on a mission to track down every rural location, free-thinking school, digital platform, community venue, bedroom studio and open air square footage to use music and singing to improve people’s playing, singing voice, health, relationships, work opportunities, lifestyle choices and the quality and range of fun activities you can undertake in your spare time.
