We develop key life skills and improve peoples lives through our unique music programs and community projects.

by The 7C's Foundation in Oxfordshire

The 7C's Foundation is an exciting new music charity that develops key life skills and improves peoples lives through unique music programs and community projects.

We develop 'Superstar People' (Doctors, Engineers, Bus drivers, Nurses, Teachers etc) and not just 'Superstar' performers.

"Creativity now is as important in education as literacy and we should treat it with the same status"- Sir Ken Robinson, Educationalist

Our Mission

We help people and communities by providing support and musical activities which develop their skills, capacities and capabilities to enable them to participate in society as responsible individuals. We extend the provision of the musical activities to all and any age groups that would benefit from the support and development, including the underprivileged and vulnerable.


Our Project

Our schools program is an exciting and inspirational project aimed at children between the ages of 4 and 16 years of age. For many young children this is their first introduction to live music, song writing and recording. The project began in West Oxfordshire - UK, and with your help we plan to take this exciting ground breaking project to the wider community. 


The Process - 'Phase 1'

The 7C's Foundation Touring Band works with up to 300 children at any one time, The students are presented with an exciting and inspirational School Assembly that introduces them to the joy of music, songwriting and recording. They get the opportunity to learn about musical basics, from the letters used in music, to tempos, different sounds used with guitars, drums and keyboards. They are introduced to creating and writing lyrics and the importance of melody. Then as a collective they sing their hearts out to their newly created song, with the help of the 7C's touring band. The assembly ends with a final recording of the newly created masterpiece. All done in a one hour school assembly.  

"I cannot express how fantastic it has been for our children, if you or your children ever get the chance to be involved with the 7Cs Foundation then go for it!"

The Process - 'Phase 2'

Our touring band spends the day with a school working in classrooms with one big aim in mind...getting the creative juices flowing and leaving the school with completed classroom songs, choregraphed dance moves and subject art designs. Usually the songs and art work that are created are based upon a topic that the classroom have been working on that term. This completely engaging process with amazing outcomes is enormously rewarding, not only for the children but for the teaching staff too. The 7Cs touring band leaves an inspired school only returning to complete the magical music journey.


The Process - 'Phase 3'

The final phase requires each classroom to record their newly written song with the 7Cs Foundation touring band. The children then dress up for their Music Video production and lay down their rehearsed dance moves. The children experience performing in front of a green screen for their video production. The 7Cs Foundation touring band completes the final mix of the song and the video edit ending the thrilling creative process for the children. This journey is preserved for the children and the school with a song(s) and music video kept on CD and DVD.


The Results

Our unique project focusses on delivering our key life skills to every child that we work with, including:

Creativity - Confidence - Communication - Co-operation - Coordination - Commitment - Constructive Thinking 

Our project is a journey that starts with 'nothing' and initiates a creative spark in all participants specifically with song writing, dance moves, art design and ends with tangible outcomes, a recorded song and accompaying music video as well as our delivered key life skills. 



"My son is getting on better with his friends, he has improved in confidence and is enjoying school" - Parent, Louise Minns 

"We have had an amazing experience, the kids have written a song based around our school values. The kids were absolutely buzzing! We would absolutely recommend the schools program to any school" - Deputy Head, Queen Emma's Primary School

The Bottom Line

We need funding please, to make our Schools Program available to as many schools and children as possible. We have a waiting list of schools that want us to help them with their music education across Oxfordshire and the UK. We need your help please to inspire a generation and champion creativity!
