“I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you both for all of the effort, hard work and perseverance you put into the project. The kids absolutely loved it and I had at least ten parents come up to me when the kids went home to say how impressed they were.

The same is true for Alyson and Diana, our head and deputy head. It was a really great show and far exceeded everyone’s expectations.”

-Paul Keane. Year 5 Teacher


GMM’s work can be broken into three basic formats:

  • Workshops – one off sessions designed to focus on a few elements
  • Projects – a series of workshops programmed to meet the needs of your group
  • Activities – this title covers a broad range of possible areas within our work where the aims are less specifically about music education and targeted more at creating engaging music experiences for participants

The GMM method has been devised and developed by individuals who have a vast experience of studying, performing and educating in music and have devoted their lives to developing their own musical creativity.

A mixture of precise and carefully planned detail with a high level of flexibility and bespoke structuring for clients means that GMM always provides an excellent service.

Workshops and projects are designed bespoke to meet the needs of your group. Please get in touch to discuss the parameters of your needs and we will be able to give you a quote CONTACT

Where does GMM fit in?

GMM Pie Chart

GMM believes strongly that there are 4 main elements to a young person’s successful engagement with music and music education.

Young people need:

  1. An instrument + a teacher (one without the other is not much use)
  2. An ensemble to rehearse and share with (these take many forms from orchestras to rock bands and beyond)
  3. Concerts to perform at (gigs etc - whatever you like to call them)
  4. Inspiration and imagination fuel (that's where we help)

What about the other important things like reading music, singing, technology, theory, etc?

Of course GMM believes these are important and necessary.

We believe that by delivering the top 4 elements, other key factors will naturally feed into a student's education.



GMM will support your young people in all 4 key elements, but our main focus is inspiration! Alongside attending concerts/gigs young people need to have a wide range of music making experiences and workshops to fuel their imagination and broaden their horizons.

Young people who take part in GMM projects...

  • are more confident about their composing, improvising and performing skills
  • are more enthusiastic about playing in ensembles, learning new material and playing live
  • engage better with fellow students and music making generally
