The MusicOnWheels bus in the press
Check out some of the coverage the MusicOnWheels bus has received in the press:
Lycaeum is proud to present the most unique music teaching project in London – our refurbished and fully fitted musical double decker bus!
Lycaeum MusicOnWheels makes music learning accessible for those communities that need it most. Our MusicOnWheels project has been featured in press and on the radio, and has received recognition in the form of grants from local councils and the government.
We hold regular events throughout London and other major cities for both our Lycaeum students and for the general public. The latest projects in London have included free music teaching courses in Brent and free music introduction days in different parts of London, such as Peckham and Canada Water.
Our MusicOnWheels bus was created by a handful of our team. Funded by Lycaeum, a crowdfunding campaign, and some major sponsors, we purchased a London double decker bus in April 2019. Over that spring and summer, the team of 5 worked non-stop to turn the old bus into an exciting music space for children.
The seats were removed, the bus was washed and painted throughout, carpeted and a number of custom furniture pieces were designed and installed. We then completed the renovation by filling the bus with musical instruments!
