Reggie Dabbs & iCare Academy

"Alright Alright Alright!!!"

On Friday 14th July, I organised a whole school assembly where Reggie Dabbs came in as a guest motivational speaker alongside icare academy . Reggie is an American noted by NBC as "the world's best young persons speaker". I have to thank Rachel Landon for supporting my idea and Aimee Lyall (assistant head and head). 


Students were in tears and laughing. There were professional dancers and a team of interns who help to set up the charity. Their thoughts were provoked as they reflect on their journeys, lives and their futures. It was truly remarkable to see the talented Reggie sharing his story and playing on the soprano saxophone! He is a remarkable musician. He had everyone clapping, laughing, crying and singing. If you want to book them for your school, contact info@icarerevolution.co.uk

Radley College MiSST

It has been an incredible experience this week at Radley College in Oxfordshire working with MIIST (Music In Secondary Schools Trust)

Music students and teachers were there from Highbury Grove school, Holloway, St Mary Mags, Fred Burmer, Lister Community school and South Londons SedgeHill. 

Students completed half a years worth of hours over 4 days playing & learning music repertoire. Our students also won the dance comp and musician of the week. It was enjoyable meeting new people & working in challenging circumstances. Students overcame doubt & learned very Hard pieces by Elgar, Beethoven and Michael Jackson.
