• Bristol Plays Music (BPM), the Music Education Hub for Bristol, and Urban Development, a London based talent development organisation, worked in partnership over August 2016 to deliver a week-long residential, called the ‘Urban Artist School - Summer Academy’. The project was designed for talented young people who are drawn to less formal musical genres and activities such as Pop, Hip-Hop, R’n’B (as opposed to Jazz and Classical) and was facilitated by a team of experienced Music Leaders and industry professionals, all of whom are active in the local music scene. The aim was to inspire, provide career insights and support the young people to realise their musical potential through simulating real world experiences relating to the ‘journey of a track’ process; from conception through to creation, recording and on to release.

  • Soundcastle projects focus on enabling young people and their families to write their own music.  Musical Beacons Charlton ran from 2015-2016 and was aimed at families with children aged 0-11, in an area of social housing.  During this project, we challenged ourselves further on our commitment to youth voice, asking ourselves just how much ownership of the process can be handed over to our young musicians. We have collected thoughts, ideas and activities to bring into our practice to make sure we are hearing, listening to and amplifying the voices of your young people.
