What We Do

What We Do

We devise creative music projects which enable people to discover the skills to write their own music. The Soundcastle Theory of Practice places community members at the heart of the creative process, promoting ownership and ultimately autonomy. This leads to reduced isolation and enhanced wellbeing, connectedness and resilience.

Our aims are:

  • To bring music back into grassroots culture and daily lives.
  • To tackle social isolation, and increase wellbeing.
  • To create an international community of musicians and facilitators working in this way and advocating for music for all.


We offer three strands of creative delivery:


Embed: Inclusive and open access music groups which grow from communities over an ongoing period of time.


Catalyst : Short-term intervention projects in partnership with education, community, heritage, arts or health care organisations.


Spark: One day training sessions that seek to ignite creative thinking and challenge the status-quo of organisations.

 We have made many friends on the Soundcastle journey. Here are some organisations we have had the pleasure of collaborating with.
