SWeet! Recorder Consort CIC – Extraordinary Recorder For Extraordinary Kids
'SWeet!' comes from the Italian for 'recorder' which is flauto dolce or sweet flute. The capitalisation of SW reflects our affiliation with Streatham Wells Primary School in SW2
"Our findings demonstrate that music education has an important role to play in childhood development and add to the converging evidence that music training is capable of shaping skills that are ingredients of success in social and academic development. It is of particular importance that we show these effects in children from disadvantaged backgrounds" - Habibi, Cahn, A. Damasio, H. Damasio, 2016
SWeet!'s repertoire is hugely varied: from the music of the Renaissance and Baroque, with which the recorder is most commonly associated, through Classical, jazz, minimalist music, and folk music from around the World, to rock, pop, rap, Bollywood and music using electronics and extended temporary techniques, there really is something for everyone on each SWeet! concert programme.

She has grown in confidence...she was extremely shy and wouldn't play her instrument in class music. I think her recorder has really supported this change
My children and I used to live in a refuge. Through SWeet! they have grown in confidence, they have taken and passed exams and had the courage to perform both solos and in consort
I like that we get to be in lots of concerts
SWeet! gratefully acknowledges the generous support of our funders and sponsors, without whom we could not reach those children most in need.
