Beat This is a Community Interest Company (or CIC), which is a social enterprise with a conscience. They use music and technology to help children, young people and adults with additional needs develop skills, interact and create through music.
Many of the people that they support are disengaged from mainstream society or education and may have special educational needs and disabilities, mental health issues, or challenging behaviour.
This year they have built Peterborough’s 1st Community Music Studio (Chime Creation Cente) where people will have the opportunity to learn, record, perform their music and gain qualifications in a professional recording studio environment.
For more details on Beat This you can check their website, Facebook page and Twitter.
