What Others Say...
“Dan Budd is an excellent music coach who we have used at Jigsaw to run workshops for our children and young people. He always forms a quick and positive connection with those he’s working with and is able to support learning across a broad range of abilities, age and communication challenges. We love his music workshops and sessions. My own daughter, who has complex needs,
took part in Dan's sessions prior to Covid, and during
her time shielding and since, has used playing the
ukulele as a way of channelling her emotions when
things seemed overwhelming and it has had a
significantly positive impact on her mental health!”

“Krunch South West works with young people aged 9 to 25 years, providing a wide range of youth services to support young people with a diverse range of personal and social needs. Dan Budd has worked alongside Krunch for many years providing opportunities in music for those who don’t thrive in the school environment but have amazing untapped creative potential. With bespoke programmes and strategies, Dan has helped unlock that potential for many and
we’ve seen transformation as they start to flourish
and express themselves.”

Helping young people to discover who they are,
what they want to be and how to get there
"Dan Budd has pioneered a creative brand of music education for
young people in South Gloucestershire and beyond. As a music coach
he is at the top of his game but he also excels in recruiting, training,
enabling and releasing others to be the best music educators possible.
I know he really helped me build the foundations I needed to launch
my own successful music education business in Wirral, Lancs."

Like many other community organisations, we are reliant on
the help of volunteers and associates to carry out our vital
work. Dan has helped us in a great number of ways with
communications support, fundraising and other areas of
creative input and strategic direction. He is also one of
our incredibly valuable Voluntary Trained Mentors.”
