Welcome to the site of Sound Waves South West Music & Music Therapy Trust - SWSW.

We are an independent charity the Trust having been established since 2000 and we rely totally on charitable support to undertake our activities which include providing Music Therapy to children in Cornwall and Devon, facilitating music workshops within schools and offering a free Instrument Loan Scheme. Demand for such precious opportunities is continually increasing.

With a recital to commence the Bude Music Society's season 2014 Duncan's playing was forceful and commanding with the proceeds from the raffle generously donated to SWSW.  SWSW is very grateful to the BMS for the opportunity to display an information board.

The Trustees were thrilled to meet with Duncan and were inspired by his skill, dedication and enthusiasm. They are delighted to announce that Duncan Honeybourne has accepted their invitation to become a Patron of Sound Waves South West. Please see his fascinating, informative and very moving website

A new Project for Sound Waves

Calling all Head Teachers, Heads of Music and Music Teachers

Sound Waves South West has for some years provided Music Therapy to several Schools in the local area and we are delighted to announce that we are now in a position to offer all Schools the opportunity to host an INSET day on the subject of Music Therapy, it’s benefits and uses.

This is a new service being offered by Sound Waves and is a wonderful opportunity for teachers to have a better understanding of how Music Therapy can greatly benefit the lives of many children not only in the Special Units but also the pupils in the mainstream Schools.
