Jacksons Lane Arts Centre will soon be helping children on the other side of the borough make music thanks to a £16,000 grant.
The National Foundation for Youth Music handed Jacksons Lane the cash so it can start working with children at Seven Sisters Primary School in Tottenham.
The arts centre, in Archway Road, Highgate, is working with music organisation Musicus on weekly after-school guitar lessons.
They will be led by musician Tom Halpenny, who developed his own unique ensemble teaching methods during his time working in New York schools.
Jacksons Lane participation manager, Stuart Cox, said the money would bring the primary school “alive” with music.

Cllr Zena Brabazon, chair of governors at Seven Sisters, said many pupils would be unable to take part in this type of after-school activity without the funding.
