Impro Integrated Music Projects

From 1997 – 2008 Impro Integrated Music Projects, a company led by Eddie and his partner Elaine Furness, designed and ran major education and community projects in London and nationally with funding from Arts Council GB, Youth Music, Gulbenkian Foundation and other bodies.   “Developing Musical Communities” was a 3 year project in Greenwich and Lewisham; “People Symphony”  involved 15 schools and community groups from across London, and “Groove On” was a KS2-3 transition project in Enfield. Impro also worked with World Music group Akasae, Django Bates’ Delightful Precipice and the Eddie Parker Group and designed and led training courses for teachers and musicians. Impro led Brecon Jazz Festival’s Education and Outreach project for 3 years.
