Bring on the creative movement!
Back in 2010, our founder Cliffy Cooper started a grassroots outreach program to provide children
with limited or no access to music education. Every week he would volunteer his time to teach
hundreds of children in his local area. Over the years as the positive impact became clear, he
founded the not-for-profit company Community Music Initiative and began putting a small-dedicated
team together to nurture and grow the projects work.
As a team, we applied for small funding grants and outreached further by rolling out music programs
to more children delivered by a group of hand-picked specialist teachers. However, as rewarding as
this work was, we became aware that after courses were delivered, there was a dramatic restriction
on how progress could be measured as exams were costly and time consuming with a long process
from start to finish.
We witnessed that so many enthusiastic and talented students with so much potential were missing out on the opportunity to gain qualifications and progress to the next stages of their learning and development due to financial and access restrictions. Frustration at current systems was felt, not only by us, but also by a large number of teachers, students and schools that we engaged with.
Pulling together professional musicians and IT specialists, we spurred on the idea to radically change and improve what was currently in place and create online music exams and work in partnerships to help effectively implement associated course materials.
