This coming weekend MORE MUSIC is producing a 24 hour Music Party @ LMF2017 with the aim of raising funds for our Homeless Action music programme in Lancaster.
People taking part in the music sessions describe how singing, in particular, has lifted their spirits  "the only reason I walk the planet” and restored their self-belief  "singing has really helped my confidence”
 
They also say it makes a significant contribution to their recovery from addiction  " helps me deal with the bad stuff that happens” and has helped them refocus and rebuild their lives, securing and maintaining a home and returning to paid employment.

With funding from  the National Foundation for Youth Music, we have trained 42 EYFS staff  from eleven schools in the city of Salford to deliver our Can Do Music programme.

We recently delivered an intensive 2 day programme Re-write Your Story to a group of 8 young people in YOI Wetherby. The programme aims were to encourage recognition of negative behaviours and teach how to look at the future differently through music. Through the use of story writing and poetry young people will learn how to create lyrics, music and songs for self-expression. The workshops were underpinned by the use of restorative practices to support recognition of anti-social or criminal behaviour to encourage positive decision making and staying away from criminality and gangs

As part of the Kámoši Juniors Performing Arts programme, the children prepared for a performance on International Roma Day 9th April 2016. Rapper Remi joined the children over several workshops to develop the children’s song-writing skills. 

The Kámoši Juniors Group were fortunate to be joined by Sashwati and Wellington from The Satellite State Disko, a troupe of Manchester DJ’s who create unique and exceptional Eastern-European, Balkan, Gypsy beats and blends.
