PMZ Extraordinary Times logo

We are a community music charity that believes passionately in the power of music to reach out and bring people together. This is even more important now during lockdown. Our onsite sessions are currently paused but we are using this time as an opportunity to explore new and exciting ways of making music with you from a distance.

Community Creation ~ Acrostic MUSIC Poem Challenge
