Year-round, Serious works in partnership with schools and with Music Education Hubs to provide young people with opportunities to work with inspirational artists. We collaborate to help deliver aspects of the music curriculum and enhance hub provision, as well as creating bespoke performance opportunities to showcase this work.
In the past we have worked with;
- Tri-Borough Music Hub (Westminster, Kensington & Chelsea and Hammersmith & Fulham)
- Hackney Music Service
- East London Cultural Education Partnership (ELCEP)
- Creative Schools (Barbican and A New Direction – Cultural Education Challenge)
- Southwark Music Hub
- Arts First – Islington Hub
- THAMES- Tower Hamlets Music Hub
We will also be expanding our partnership work to connect with Music Hubs from around the UK. If you're interested in working with us, please get in touch by emailing [email protected].
‘ Serious gives Tower Hamlets students amazing opportunities in jazz and world music: inspirational experiences for all involved. ’

Arts Award supporter
The Arts Award is a fast-growing, accredited arts qualification for young people aged 7-25. Across five levels, the Arts Award provides a framework for young people learning and sharing new creative and leadership skills. You can find out more here.
Serious has supported primary and secondary age students in mainstream schooling and Pupil Referral Units to achieve Arts Award qualifications through engagement in bespoke music-making projects. We also deliver Arts Award as part of our Young & Serious programme for emerging events producers. As an official Arts Award Supporter, we can help support your young people in achieving their qualification.
We have run workshops for young people to participate in the arts, and offer a range of opportunities for young people to meet inspiring artists and creatives. If you are looking for opportunities to bring your group to an event as audience members, we can offer discounted tickets at £5 for Arts Award groups.
If you’re interested in any of the above, or would like to develop bespoke opportunities to meet the individual needs of your group, please get in touch with [email protected].
