Amy’s Gift is a music project which has been funded for one year by the Amy Winehouse Foundation. It brings music and singing to the children at Dunnottar School and the Boys Training Centre. The aim is to improve the health and happiness of the participants by extending the opportunities for music.

Teaching started in September 2014, undertaken by Mr. John Polius, professional musician and music teacher. The funding was for 654 hours of tuition with Mr. Polius spending half of his time at Dunnottar School and half at the Boys Training Centre.

The Amy Winehouse Foundation funding has provided the musical instruments, the services of a music teacher and drug awareness training for a one year period. By this September another EC $50,000 needs to be raised to pay for the on-going music teacher’s salary, new instruments, re-tuning the steel pans and sustaining the drug awareness programme. The Music Project needs sponsors and private donations for the second year beginning September 2015, and for subsequent years, to ensure on-going success. Please show support by attending the free concert and, where possible, promising aid.
