THAMES Projects

THAMES (Tower Hamlets Arts & Music Education Service) is the Hub for the music and the arts in Tower Hamlets, designed to support all young people, schools and families in the borough.

We provide a wide range of activities including:

  • Instrumental, vocal and ensemble tuition

  • Class music teaching (curriculum support)

  • Advisory support for music and the arts

  • Performance opportunities

  • INSET and CPD

  • Music and arts projects/workshops

  • A Saturday morning music school for pupils learning instruments

THAMES was established in 2006. In just over six academic years, the number of students accessing instrumental and vocal provision in the borough rose from around 650 to over 10,000, with over 90% of schools now buying in instrumental / vocal tuition from THAMES.

THAMES is the Lead Partner for the Tower Hamlets and City of London Music Education Hub, funded by Arts Council England. The majority of our work is focussed on music, however, due to other funding streams, we are increasingly expanding our reach into other art forms.

We offer projects in Dance, Drama, Music, Media & Film and Visual Arts as well as Museum Education.

We are part of the local Area Network for Arts Award and also part of the Artsmark Partnership programme.

Our programmes reach:

  • Early years

  • Primary

  • Secondary

  • Special

  • Transition

  • Teachers via CPD and events

  • Youth work
