Más Y Más have been making people dance and bringing joy, fun and alegria to audiences all around the world.Sharing their music with people of all ages has always been important to Rikki, Wayne and Rich and this goal and has led to them working with children and young people in a variety of ways.

 

Shows for Young People are just like a regular Más Y Más show but with more interactivity and participation and a chance to find out more about the band, the instruments and the music.

Más Y Más in School is a chance for children to work with Más Y Más on developing their skills with and through music. Focusing on singing, rhythm, languages and positive behavior it’s a chance for children and young people to experience, explore and play with aspects of music making from within a professional band.

Music Service commissions have been a chance for Mas Y Mas to write, arrange and record songs that have then been taught in all of the schools in a local authority as part of ‘Wider Opportunities’. Children from these schools have then come together to perform in a massive Más Y Más show with the band.

 

Rikki, Rich and Wayne have a passionate belief in the power of music to connect, transform, inspire, enthuse, build confidence and develop self esteem in children and young people. Many of the young people we work with have had little experience of live music. Their view is often that music is purely a means to fame and wealth and something that happens in competition or just something that other people do. Más Y Más aim to inspire a life long love of music in children and young people that will enrich their lives.
