Hogan Music Academy

Message from Mike Hawthorne, Hogan Academy Manager:

Since the Academy was founded back in November 2014, the aim had always been to become a charity, whose main purpose was to make music accessible to all, regardless of financial situation or ability. We battled for some time to achieve this, and after changing solicitors in mid-2016, we achieved the status on
December the 22nd, 2016. We were all delighted that this had happened, as it meant we could finally fulfill our core purpose and start to give musical experiences to those who wouldn’t otherwise be able to access them, therefore enabling them to experience the magic of music.

Our main focus is on young people – those under 25, to be precise. We are going to provide drastically subsidised sessions in schools, as well as give free lessons to those who fit the given criteria. We already
operate free “Rock Schools” over at Hungerford Community Centre, and at The Clere School as after-school clubs, and we are hoping to expand that provision to other schools and local centres. In the fullness of time, and depending on funding, we will also be looking to drop the price of lessons for all of our students under 25, regardless of whether they have those lessons here or at school.

We are obviously going to be in need of funding for some of these new ventures, so if you
know of anyone who would like to donate to a good cause, or perhaps do a sponsored run
or car wash or other such activity, just let us know – the more the merrier! We are due to be
launching a fundraising campaign soon so if anyone wants to donate please contact us at

Thank you!
