The Ripchords by Spark Music

SPARK Youth Music work with young people to improve their confidence, self esteem and mental health through music. Youngsters work together within bands and by doing so also learn life and work skills. We aim to be totally inclusive and believe that every child should be a musician. We encourage youngsters from all backgrounds to join SPARK irrespective of financial background and provide equipment and instruments so that we reduce barriers to participation. SPARK is a not for profit community interest company that was born out of a personal need. Founders Clare and Mike Thomas opened up part of their house as a rehearsal space for their son Sam's band in 2019 following the closure of Stratford Music Centre.

The Ripchords were then born!

It was immediately apparent that the benefits the band members experienced by being in a band extended far beyond creating fantastic music. There were significant mental health benefits, the band were learning to work as a team, manage their time and be accountable - all brilliant life and work skills. They were also learning the practical side of running their own band which brought in logo design, t shirt design, promotions and finances. The Ripchords were effectively the pilot for SPARK. The Ripchords have gone from strength to strength as a band and now give back to younger musicians by helping at our SPARK programmes so that all youngsters can experience that same joy of being in a band and performing.
