Doing the Arts Awards for the first time proves to be more challenging - and rewarding - than first imagined.

Rock Up, where the challenges, at times, have been great - and the rewards have been even greater.

It’s never too late to evaluate.

An innovative creative music project working with children and young people in nurture groups in primary schools and PRUs in Lowestoft.The project will sustain effective practice through a programme of high-quality creative music activities delivered to children in challenging circumstances aged 5 to 13.

Phonic is The Garage's East of England (sub-regional) music development programme, covering Norfolk, Suffolk, Peterborough and N. Cambridgeshire/Fens.

Suffolk Artlink works to improve the quality of life of people of all abilities through taking part in engaging and inspirational creative activities. We believe in the instrumental value of the arts and promote participation in high quality creative activities as a positive way of improving health and wellbeing. Projects all have a focus on being creative together -- either in pairs or small groups or within the wider community.

From November 2014 to August 2016, Suffolk Artlink ran a music inclusion project for young people in Lowestoft.

Sessions took place at the Colville House Youth Club - the only senior youth club in the town - and included informal music making, plus one-to-one tuition supported by online tutorials, and opportunities for band practice and showcasing their music.

The combination of music genres - rock and pop and DJ-ing - made the sessions more accessible to the young people in the Club, and the different entry levels, from complete beginner to experienced musician, means that there's something for everyone take engage with.

Regular tutors are all highly experienced music tutors and each has extensive experience of working in the music industry, from producer to performer.
