One of HMDT’s important goals is to support long-term initiatives that enable students to realise and develop their musical talents. Its two music schools – The Centre for Young Musicians Hackney and Young Jazz Hackney, provide consistent weekly sessions for students interested in studying music and playing an instrument. Each school has a unique musical style and teaching emphasis – offering students a wealth of choices with which to further their talents.
HMDT continues to be a creative force in the community, ensuring that musical and cultural diversity flourish both in Hackney and beyond. Its unique initiatives offer opportunities to a broad range of people, from the under 5s to over 60s, who want to develop their potential, either as a first experience or a step towards a musical career.
