The backing track vocalist VS the instrumental vocalist. Who are they, where have they come from, what are the differences, why do they choose to use tracks, are they less of a musician? UVG’s Musical Director Amba Tremain discusses this touchy issue.

A few weeks ago I was invited to speak at the annual Shaping Portsmouth Conference on the theme of ‘Inspiring The Next Generation’

UpBeat was a year-long music project in Oxford that was hosted by Fusion Arts and delivered by Young Women’s Music Project. UpBeat was presented to young women in Oxford as a unique series of music masterclass sessions where participants could identify their needs in terms of music progression and received support through music leaders and mentors from Young Women’s Music Project (YWMP).

How do we inspire young people?

The answer is:  – we don’t.  Young people are inspired by other young people.   Our job is to create the context in which that can happen.

That’s what we’ve learned from our ‘Young People’s Gatherings’  which  bring together young people from musical inclusion projects across Teesside for a celebratory day of workshops and performances

Rhythmix runs sessions at youth clubs across Sussex for young people with special educational needs and disabilities. At The Joff in Peacehaven Marina runs sessions with ‘Funky Teens’.

We have developed a resource booklet full of engaging information and activities about DJing while sneaking a heap of literacy, numeracy and even some geography and history in there.
Also contains glossaries of music terms and DJ terms as relevant to the current music curriculum.
