THE BIG WHY BEHIND WEST END KIDS

By Martin Williams

You may be wondering what inspired me to create West End Kids almost two decades ago? What inspires me to keep going?

Let me tell you a little story. I used to be a jobbing musical director at stage schools. All are fantastic schools with brilliant teachers.
In the late 90's, I was trying to find a way to ensure those with exceptional talent and/or motivation weren't held back whilst training with those who were only there for day care (harsh but true!). 

It was impossible to keep them motivated when everyone else was only there because they didn't have anything else to do. 

And I was getting more and more disillusioned and frustrated. 

Then, as I'd feared - the most talented and promising students left the school and gave up performing all together... due to bordeom! Noooo!... and I was so excited about the progress they could make. 

I love teaching because I'm passionate and determined to help ambitious young performers achieve their dreams through hard work and dedication... I wasn't ready to give up! 
It dawned on me that I could change this. I could create something unique and special. It would be for those super motivated and enthusiastic young performers. 

At that point, everything changed for me! 

I set to work on creating "West End Kids" and, through many years of trial and error, finally worked out how to...

I set to work on creating "West End Kids" and, through many years of trial and error, finally worked out how to...
  • Motivate and accelerate ambitious young performers toward dramatic improvements.
  • Give them exceptional opportunities that their level of enthusiasm and motivation deserved.
  • Bring like-minded young performers together to produce an electrifying performing environment 
I'd become so committed to working with children and teenagers. I developed such a passion and motivation to break the mould. I was able to; 
  • Transform performers who COULD into those who WOULD.
  • Guarantee that talent wasn't held back in any way.
  • Passionately nurture a generation of exceptional, hard-working, thriving talent. 
Now, I'm living my dream of helping ambitious young performers achieve their performing dreams. 

I hope you'll join me and all of the other West End Kids on that journey!
