In 2012, Daisi began delivering Soundwaves, which focuses on developing musical opportunities for young people in challenging circumstances in Devon and Torbay. The project is funded by Youth Music, the national music education charity.
Children and young people can experience challenges in their lives through their immediate social, economic or geographic environment, physical or learning disabilities or other factors. Music is a vital ingredient in bringing about personal and social change for these children.
“I’ve never made a CD of my own music in my life – I’m well proud of it”.
Rhys, resident, Esther Housing Community, Exeter
Daisi’s role is to bring together and support people, places and organisations who want to bring the transformative power of music to the most in need.
Daisi is working with Youth Music as part of The Alliance for a Musically Inclusive England (AMIE) – a collective of 13 leading music organisations working together to promote diversity and cultural democracy in music education.

Soundwaves music workshops are currently taking place with Children in Care, with young people not able to attend mainstream school through ill health, with young people living in supported housing settings, and with groups of schools looking to ensure access to music opportunities for all their students.
