Ark Academy benefits from Ronnie Scotts Instrument Amnesty

Friday 28 January 2022

Ark Academy’s Music Department has been fortunate enough to benefit from the recent Instrument Amnesty that has been advertised in the local press and on radio at Ronnie Scotts in Soho. One of our members of staff went along on Saturday, where dozens of musicians were donating their old instruments to the famous Jazz club, in the hope that it can be passed on to help out any budding musicians who are unable to afford one themselves. We are excited to announce that we have acquired a Soprano Saxophone, 2 Clarinets, 2 Flutes, an Oboe and a Violin and can’t wait to get students learning on these instruments. The department has been previously lacking in the woodwind department so this will absolutely help in ensuring that we have a full orchestra in the near future. We will be contacting students very soon with this incredible opportunity to borrow a free instrument.
